Dissolution should go to a public vote

Posted 19 July 2014 at 12:00 am


The attendance that has been present at the meetings involving dissolution has shown us the interest is high and people all have an opinion.

We have village residents that are part of the towns that cannot understand why the Village Board is not listening to their desire to vote. We have town residents that want to put this issue to bed.

Also unfortunately we have town elected representatives who do not want to do anything but take tax dollars and fund mailers, public relation firms, and then refuse to release information after inquiries under the Freedom of Information Act. They have no motivation for change. They have no desire to act.

One Medina (with a dissolved village government and consolidated towns of Shelby and Ridgeway) over time results in lower costs, less duplication and greater simplicity.

One Medina will always cost less than three. All of monies used to fund or efforts are coming from people who believe that One Medina is the best path for us all.

It’s time for a vote. Let the people decide.
