Raising taxes is not the answer but apparently it is easier than getting pensions under control and so they raised them without a chance for us to vote on it
Where are our taxes going?
What services will be cut next?
Business owners and property owners are in this together

SSA 16 canceled as reported in the Patch
SSA 16 canceled as reported by the Village
The proposed special service area number 16 was not well received by many in the central business district but defeating it required a major effort by a few dedicated individuals. Two years from now we will most likely see another proposal and hopefully it will reflect the will of those involved.
Who knows when this economy will turn around and until it does everyone must do their part to reduce costs and
property taxes will continue to be a big issue especially with the pension plans that are now out of control.
The proposed special service area 16 raised a lot of questions:
1.) Are the business owners and property owners working together?
2.) Is there a lack of communications within the business district?
3.) Is information available, complete, and accurate?
4.) Are the requirements to defeat a proposed special service area reasonable?
Each of these questions should be addressed but first we would like to hear from you.
A site like this should not be necessary and hopefully will not be required in the future but if you agree communications need to be improved and have some suggestions and/or questions contact us at:
