Voting early?

As in the past, Minerva Park’s ballot will be published in the November issue of the Villager newsletter, or you can download a copy now. It offers voters an opportunity to review the candidates and issues before you vote. You may mark your choices and take them with you to the polls.
Running for Mayor will be incumbent Lynn Eisentrout. Running for the two open Council seats will be Tony Benedetti, Michael Braun, and Russell Dobbins. Additionally, residents will be asked to renew its existing 5-year, a 1.9-mill property tax levy for general operations of the Village. This levy, like the three others that have existed for many years, provides vital revenues to the General Fund.
Records indicate the 1.9-mill levy on the ballot this November has been approved and supported by residents going back to 1985. Because it would be the renewal of an existing tax levy – not a new tax levy – it will not increase your taxes.
In 2010, when residents last continued the levy, it generated est. $73,630. Since then, MP property values have declined, as they have throughout the country, and now the levy would generate est. $63,100 annually. A similar loss has been experienced with the other property tax levies of the Village. The loss in revenue has been offset by budget adjustments and the increase in the income tax approved by the residents in 2014.
If residents do not renew the 1.9-mill levy, those property taxes would cease to be collected, and future budgets and General Fund services would have to be adjusted accordingly for the loss of revenue.
