Shelby and Ridgeway Town Boards love subsidies from Medina
Taxes inside the Village of Medina are the highest anywhere. It stands to reason – we are taxed for services we don’t receive.
Look at the 2013 town budgets to see what villagers pay for in their Town tax:
Control of Dogs
Town Highway Superintendents
Brush and Weeds
“Services For Other Governments”
All together, we pay $2.6 million for all these services every year.
What do village residents actually get for our money? Not much:
Licenses (all of which we pay a fee for besides)
Courts (which is offset by fine income)
The Village is a Bank for the Towns with no pay back to the Village. No wonder the Town Boards are spending our Tax dollars on PR agents and mass mailings to scare us and village residents paid for those, too.
We need relief NOW! The Towns are unwilling to give any tax relief, so dissolving the Village government looks like our only hope.
Let the people vote on it.
