Sylvania Township Trustees At It Again

While idly surfing through The Blade I found that the three trustees from Sylvania Township are here to help us. Having suffered a temporary set back on the merger between the city of Sylvania and the Township and thus losing the chance to drive their constituents into the poor house with Draconian taxes, these three are now trying to shove mandatory resident funded waste management down our throats and lighten our bank accounts at the same time. Naturally it's for our own good. If the Township doesn't get more of our money, we'd risk straining ourselves carrying it around.

Sylvania Township - Fire Department Update


This installment of my Township Update will focus on the Fire Department, which has been extremely busy the last 18 months fulfilling the promises of the 2008 1.25 Mill Fire Levy. But first, a brief announcement about the Police Department:

Tax Holiday Extended in Police Department

As we begin the 2010 budget process, the Sylvania Township Trustees unanimously voted to extend the tax holiday that I first introduced in 2007. In total, this tax holiday will save Sylvania Township taxpayers $1,050,000 in 2010 and approximately $2,700,000 over three years.

The City of Sylvania Tries Again

If at first you don't succeed, try to get elected. Apparently that's the motto of at least one, if not both candidates for the two Sylvania Township trustee positions on the ballot in November. The incumbents, Pam Hanley and DeeDee Liedel worked to protect the Sylvania Township residents when the question of a 'merger' with the city of Sylvania was on the November ballot in 2008. The merger was defeated by 72% in Sylvania Township. Feeling a little stung by their defeat, the city government might be duplicitous enough to slip in a couple of frauds.

Resolution of the Sylvania Merger Issue Is Good

They say the voters are never wrong, and that is certainly the case with the Sylvania merger issue. In this instance the status quo is pretty good. Both Sylvania governments are currently financially sound and providing similar services to their residents. My motivation in pursuing the merger was to secure lower real estate taxes for everyone in both jurisdictions and a lower earned income tax rate in the entire community.

Unscrupulous, Illegal Conduct By Sylvania City Council

The Sylvania Area Community Improvement Corporation (SCIC) contributed $10,000 to help One Sylvania promote a 'merger' with Sylvania Township. Dee-Dee Liedel objected to the legality of this donation, but she was shouted down and out voted. Now it seems Dee isn't alone. Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers objects as well.
