General Fund Dollars Not Going Where They Should

Tagged:  

Toledo city council will vote tomorrow on legislation brought forward by the administration to take money from the general fund and give it to EOPA and local homeless shelters.
We are told each time the 3/4% temporary payroll tax comes up that it goes into the general fund to cover the costs of police, firefighters, sanitation, and other daily expenses to run the city. CIP dollars are used for roads and infrastructure improvements.
Mike Bell now wants to take $215,000 from the general fund to give to the shelters and EOPA. That means something else in the general fund gets shorted. I can understand how union guys would be upset after being told we don't have the money for them to suddenly be able to find it for EOPA. This money will never be paid back, it will not be there again next year when these organizations face the same shortfalls.
On top of this theft from the general fund the city wants you to pass a levy to fund recreation, one for the schools, imagination station etc etc.
Time to call your councilperson and make your voice heard whether you live in the city or not. If you work here that tax comes right from your paycheck.

No votes yet

I'm sure Take Back Toledo is gearing up their recall campaign as we speak.

Recall Mike Bell!

have utilized to kill 67,000 jobs here, put TPS's into perpetual academic crisis mode, neglect our roads and infrastructure, pad the pay of under worked and overpaid public unionists, and morons laugh at the situation ?!

Toledo Dims, as dissolute as D.C. Dims, L.A. Dims, Chicago Dims, Detroit Dims, and it will get much. much, worse with jackasses voting for more of the same ?!

Great idea senseless, I'll get right on that. Thanks for the input.

Fred, you don't do anything your boss doesn't tell you to do. I do like that trick though where he puts that little biscuit just over your nose and you’re not allowed to eat it till he gives the ‘ok’. Great trick!

I do hope Brian and Andy fire up the Talk Back Toledo machine against Bell, but I won’t hold my breath. If they do I hope they at least fill out the paper work correctly so it’s not thrown out in court like their last recall…

Excellent post Sensor, meets and exceeds your usual standards of staying on point and informative.

horrendous voting pattern here.
Specifically, why did you morons vote for Sleepy Jack Ford ,over any living opponent !?
What ever compelled you to vote for Peter Gerken, a "committeeman", hated by line workers ?!
Bob McCluskey, a very well known apparatchik,of the Dim Criminal Party of Toledo.
Sandy Izenberg, a well known shakedown artist, ala Jesse Jackson ?!
Carleton Finkbiner, a very well documented lunatic whose rantings classify most citizens as "unbalanced", and unfit for any elected position ?!
etc.
etc.
etc.

Yeah, Dims have a whole lot to explain of why they are as obtuse and vapid, as any babbling, drooling, 4th Floor psycho at St.Charles Hospital !!!!!!!!!!!!!
