Time to "Dark Station" their police, fire and sanitary services

Want your property taxes computed on an absurd, made up "dark store" value for your property?  Fine, the residents shopping in your stores and carrying your taxes are going to start providing public services on a "dark station" model, cutting services to any retailer by the same fraction as their property tax benefit of their "dark store" assessment. 

Let's see, intermittent electrical and water service, police and fire protection only during weekday daytime business hours ... How's that for starts?
