Answering a resident’s question: Do other cities have similar inside millage like Twinsburg? Is it common to have this?
Category: Issues & Resident Questions
Issues facing the City of Twinsburg as well as questions (and answers) and conversations that I have had with residents.
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?
A resident asked the following question: Couldn’t we spend money for a $900,000 ladder truck instead of increasing millage? With that much surplus, Twinsburg could payoff the remaining clubhouse debt too? How much is currently in the surplus as of 2020 and how does that compare to 5 to 10 years ago?
A resident asked the following question: If Issue 24 passes, will it defund the safety forces? If we need an expensive piece of equipment like a new pumper or ladder truck, is the money readily available for the purchase or if the issues passes, will it take a vote of the people to approve the expense?
There has been quite a bit of discussion and confusion already around the upcoming Issue 24 on this November’s ballot. Please submit questions and I’ll get them answered as quickly as possible.
I’ve had several people recently ask me about Halloween / Trick or Treat and whether or not Twinsburg will have it. At this time they will go on as planned.
In the September 2020 Twinsburg Mayor’s Report, Mayor Yates gives information about the November ballot petitions and what the potential Charter amendment would do to the City’s finances, the MetroParks annexation and the re-opening of Aaron and Moses!
I received a message from ODOT Project Manager that I wanted to pass along in regards to some upcoming road closures due to paver replacement at the roundabout June 12th through the 16th.
I’ve received several questions lately about Aaron & Moses gift cards. As you know, the City of Twinsburg has decided to seek an outside operator for our restaurant space currently known as Aaron & Moses at Gleneagles. If you have a previously purchased gift card from Aaron & Moses, they can be used at the Pro Shop, snack bar or cashed in.
