Former Medina trustees urge public vote on dissolution
As former Medina Village Trustees, we wish to offer our thoughts on the proposed dissolution of village government.
We served on the Village Board at various times in the last 30 years. We know first-hand how difficult it is to maintain services while holding taxes steady.
The math is simple: without rising home values, new construction, or annexations that expand village borders when needed, tax rates must climb. This is not sustainable, and we need to act before it’s too late.
The plan prepared by the Dissolution Committee preserves our services and lowers taxes. It is a credible option that deserves serious consideration.
We urge the Village Board to put the plan up for a public vote so that people – not the politicians – can have the final say.
