The levy increase would bring an additional $200,000 for the town and be used for construction project improvements. If passed the 2015 levy increase would be collected in 2015.
The 37-cent increase, if passed, would represent a 59 percent increase to the tax levy of about 62 cents per $1,000.
Look forward to learn if Jeff Gonyo, a resident of Polk, will be actively opposed to the suggested increase as he often is to the proposed budgets of Richfield. It is noteworthy to emphasize it is a "59 percent" increase.
WOW, Jeff and his cohorts would have a field day with that increase for a Richfield budget. Merriam-Webster defines "cohorts" as a group of individuals having something in common. Anyone who has lived in Richfield for a while know what they have in common.
As many Richfield residents know, there are two petitions being circulated to increase the number of Richfield trustees as well are require term limits.
Hopefully Jeff Gonyo and Danah Zoulek will not get enough signatures to bring these petitions needlessly to a Richfield referendum.
Residents sometimes ask about referendums the day of an election. By that point, officials legally cannot discuss the items with voters, even if it is explanatory in nature.
So if you have questions about the petitions in Richfield, now is the time to contact the village with your questions. Call them at 628-2260.
