ELECTION DAY TRICK OR TREAT?
Posted By: Geauga Constitutional Council 08/11/2010 @ 11:03 AM

Geauga County residents, beware, it looks like we’ll be celebrating Halloween on November 2, 2010 this year… with a ballot full of Tricks and Treats!

 
Some of the wording on the upcoming tax levies is, in my opinion, misleading. 
 
And while it is acceptable to ask for money, it is unacceptable to misinform the voter.
 
The Cardinal Tax Levy of 6.8 mills is described as a “Replacement & Decrease Continuing Period of Time Levy.”  The decrease is negligible, (0.7).  If this levy passes, you will be stuck with a 6.8 levy ongoing, because you will never be able to vote on it again unless residents sign a petition requesting to put it on the ballot.  If your property value went up since 1981, this “replacement & decrease” will increase your taxes.  
 
The Job & Family Services levy is a “Replacement” levy.  Again, if your property value has increased since this levy was previously on the ballot, your taxes will increase. Jobs and Family services do a great job for this community, why not a renewal levy?  If the GJFS is having budget challenges, please know you are in good company… we are all trying to make ends meet.
 
The Library 1 Mill Additional-Continuing Period of Time Levy will generate over $3,000,000 million dollars for the library while police, fire and EMS departments that provide life and death critical services are struggling financially.
 
And then we have the Hambden Twp Tax Levy Parks & Recreation 0.25 “Replacement & Decrease”.   I have no idea why they would label this levy as a “decrease”. If your property value increased after 1986, you will pay more taxes!  Where is the decrease?  Don’t bother asking a key proponent of this levy, Hambden Twp Trustee Keith McClintock; he is an employee of the cash rich Geauga Park District.
 
And what a treat that we won’t be seeing a Geauga Park District levy!  Of course, they don’t need a tax levy; they enjoyed a $2,107,546 dollar carryover “surplus” from 2009.
 
The Geauga County ballot will have twenty-nine tax levies.  If you are uncertain about how a levy will affect your family budget, call the County Auditor for clarification before you vote!
 
In keeping with the spirit of Halloween, all I can say about this situation is, “Boo!”  And I mean it.

Thanks Judy!  Great article!

Below are definitions of what different levies are called. This is important! You all should know what these mean and how you are being misled into voting for some of these because of purposely confusing wording. It's your money! Don't throw it away!

I have highlighted the pertinent parts so you don't have to read the whole thing unless you want to.
