Concord Trustees….love their continuous levies!

Thanks to all the Concord Township lobbyists that are gearing up for battle against unrestrained spending by the Concord Trustees!

$18 MILLION DOLLAR LEVY ON CONCORD BALLOT FOR TWO NEW FIREHOUSES

Our Trustees are planning to put a levy on our November ballot for  $18 million dollars to build two Fire Houses at once.  The new Fire Stations would replace existing  Fire House No.1 on Rt. 608 at Ravenna Road and Fire House No.2 on Prouty Road. [Utilizing the existing sites].

An extravagant architectural design for No. 1 is projected to cost Concord residents $13 million dollars right out of our pockets.  No. 2 is expected to reach $5 million dollars. [The architect & company will be paid an additional  $2 million dollars from other monies belonging to the citizens of Concord Township.]

Both of these projects are priced millions of dollars OVER the costs of half a dozen new Fire Stations in other nearby communities.

In addition, the Trustees will make this a Continuous Levy.  You will pay it for decades, into perpetuity. 

These levies are FOREVER!  It will not end, even after bills for the Fire Stations are paid. 

If you can make it please, try to attend the meeting at 7:30  PM at  the Town Hall Wednesday, 19th at the corner of Ravenna Road and Rt. 608 Concord-Hambden  Road.

THE TRUSTEES HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH THE PEOPLE AND ARE PRICING SENIORS AND THOSE LIVING ON FIXED INCOMES OUT OF THEIR HOMES!

Mr. Malchesky is very fond of continuous levies.  He supported a continuous levy for Morley Library and Concord’s safety levy.  Let him know that you think elected officials should be accountable to the taxpayers.

  1. WOW…Doesn’t the Township have ANY money to help build 2 new fire stations and a new townhall?

  2. You are so right, the levies never end, like toll-roads on the east coast.

    **Be careful of any taxes/levies that say one thing but go in to the general fund. This is very common.

    We see so many city/county/govt. contracts that go over the budget and time-of-completion WITHOUT PENALTY. There should be a hefty fee when a contractor does not finish a project on-time. And, something to penalize them for going over-budget.

    And, let’s penalize the lousy govt. officials that are not “watching the store”, protecting us, just taxing us more & more.

    Who is watching-out for the tax-payer. No one!!!! We are the new cash-cows, being taxed out of our homes.

    Let’s get those Conservative attorneys to unite and take on the new “democratic socialists” that are coming up with these un-funded liabilities at our expense, making laws & taxing us without our vote, using our tax dollars for their “special” elections.

  3. Yes, the township plans to use JEDD and possible other funds to secure a bond so they can pay for half. I am awaiting details from our trustees and administrator at the meeting on Wednesday.

  4. The politicians on both sides of the aisle are doing the same thing! Andy Rose is just doing his job…he’s a hired gun government lackey with a LOT of experience since he “served” in Mentor prior to coming to Concord.

    But the reason the people are treated the way we are all the time is because the elected officials and government employees have gotten FAT AND HAPPY on the government dole…at our expense. They care not for the people they supposedly represent. They lie to themselves and to you every single day. All they care about is keeping their cushy government job at our expense.

    Regarding one of the comments above, “conservative attorneys?” I think I laughed so hard I threw out my back. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Attorneys are a HUGE part of the problem with what has happened to our freedom in this Country. I really would like to see all attorneys banned from running for office in any capacity…period. Our local justice system in Lake County is a joke. So much pay to play in Lake County it makes me sick to my stomach, and the people are the one footing the bill for all of it.

    Most all the so-called Lake County conservatives are just as filthy dirty as Hillary Clinton and her ilk.

    Hopefully the people will begin to wake up and smell the tyranny before it’s too late. The government parasites must be removed immediately…unless they can be brought to heel. But I’m not holding my breath on that. They act like they are above the law…because in many cases, they have been. Two sets of justice in Lake County…and the people get no justice at all it seems.
