Who funds the expenses of local government? Who funds the cost of legal services when the village is involved in a legal matter?
How does the village obtain funding? One funding source for the village is through taxes paid by those who own property in the village. And some of the same people who vote.
It is impossible to separate the Village from village residents.
Danah is a candidate for village trustee in the 2015 Spring election.
At the February Village board meeting the village board voted to amend several sections of the village's Comprehensive Plan relating to quarry redevelopment. They also voted to petition the Plan Commission to amend several parcels on the Comprehensive Land Use map to residential.
These changes will impact property the Zouleks would like to purchase. They are hoping to have fill dumped there to reduce the slope of the sides of the pit.
Many residents who abut or are near the pit spoke at the meeting in hopes of not having to live for years with 13 or more trucks per hour driving to and from the pit.
How does someone who wants to be an elected village official sue the village regarding a personal issue, with village residents paying the legal tab to represent the village and still say they will work on behalf of the residents?
What is missing here? What seems strange about this picture?
