Some residents think Twinsburg’s surplus was wasted on paying debt for a clubhouse. They ask… Where did our money go?
Category: Issue 24
Issue 24 will appear on the November 3rd, 2020 ballot.
The language states:
Shall Section 6.01 of the Charter of the City of Twinsburg be amended to place a further restriction on the 10-Mill limitation set forth in Section 2, Article XII of the Ohio Constitution by limiting City Council’s ability to generate revenue for all purposes of the municipality from the current 7 mills to 2 mills?

Answering the question: Can you provide millage used for the last 10 years? To show this has been the practice ongoing.
How will Issue 24 affect Twinsburg Education System, including staff salary, and Police and Fire Department efficiency and salary.
Answering questions about Issue 24: If this is all about police and fire, why doesn’t the ballot language mention police and fire? Why am I seeing signs on both sides of the issue that mention police and fire?
A resident asked the following question about Issue 24: If issue 24 fails, will police and fire be getting more money than they already get right now? I’m under the impression that no matter if this issue passes or fails police and fire will still be getting the same amount of money. (If it passes, funds come from the general fund. And if it fails, funds come from inside millage and if more is needed it comes from the general fund)
Can we sell the clubhouse, the golf course business, and add in the 19.2 acres the city tried to rezone 3 times to generate funds to pay off the clubhouse debt?
A resident asked: How much will a $100,000 home’s property taxes go up per year without homestead reduction.
Answering a resident’s question: Do other cities have similar inside millage like Twinsburg? Is it common to have this?
A resident asked: Why Doesn’t the City Just Sell the Golf Course?
A resident asked the following question:n If Issue 24 decreases charter millage from 7 to 2 mills, why can’t Council use the unused inside millage of 2.83 to purchase the fire truck? Council currently has 7 mills for Charter Millage AND 2.83 mills for Inside Millage. Why not use inside millage for the Capital Improvement Purchase. Or why not use the surplus left by Procop?
