Hello Ward 1
The changing of the season has arrived and soon leaf season will begin. We are hoping to have enough crews in place to pick up all the leaves. However it could be doubtful!
The Administration is preparing to make cuts if the proposed income tax increase fails. This will cause a reduction in service considerably, actually it will devastate the city. This coming November 4th, (election day) will determine the direction our city will go and it is up to you.
I have heard the phrases, “I have to live within a budget in my household so the city should live within its budget” I agree totally! In my household, if our expenses exceeded our revenue we would need to make sufficient cuts to live within the budget or increase revenue. So that is exactly what we are trying to do.
“We need to bring in more business” I agree, and several new business have entered our city. We would need approximately twenty five new businesses that have a $2,000,000.00 payroll just to break even in 2015. What are the chances off that?
With the reduction of property values and little hope that the State of Ohio will restore the cuts to the local government fund, the future of Eastlake, and the services provided to all of us is a choice we can make. Please vote YES on issue 4.
Hope to see you at the polls. Until next month, Joe
