No on City Issue 3
Posted on Sunday, April 26 @ 20:36:52 EDT by Admin

News from the small city Justice writes "

Grandview city council is asking for a renewal levy to be passed, and although they have done a passable job with controlling costs, they made a big mistake in approving the police contract in February of this year. I can't vote on that particular issue, so I'm going to have to make my voice heard by voting no on Issue 3 on May 5th.

I don't know what Grandview police were thinking when they demanded a 3% per year raise for the three years of the contract. Maybe they are living in some dream world where raises continue year after year, without care or notice of the bad economy. Council President Reynolds and council members Von Jasinski and Panzera were not living in this dream world when they voted no on approving the contract.

Unfortunately council members Gladman, Jagers, Koelker and Hastie think there is money to spare in the city coffers, a false opinion. They have not learned that sometimes you have to be the bad guy who says no to unreasonable demands.

It will be up to the voters of Grandview to bring some reality back to the police, and vote no on issue 3.

(after the vote) Grandview Hts. voters were happy to pass issue 3, keeping the tax at the same rate. Initial vote was 773 yes, 125 no.

The big news for voting today was the results of the South-Western school district, a no vote on the levy caused the  school to immediately cancel all extracurricular activities - all sports, band, ect. A warning for the Grandview school, expected to have a levy in the fall.
