Poland residents to vote on repeal of storm-water utility fee

Staff REPORT

POLAND

Village residents will see a referendum on the November ballot to remove the storm-water utility ordinance.

Village council was presented the petition, which has 220 signatures, Feb. 15 and sent the petition to the Mahoning County Board of Elections, which will verify the signatures, said Linda Srnec, clerk-treasurer.

“They needed 129 signatures and they got 220 in a short period of time,” she said.

Council passed the storm-water utility ordinance Dec. 21. by a vote of 5 to 1, with Councilman David Raspanti voting no.

The monthly storm-water utility fee is $3.50 per one Equivalent Residential Unit, which is 2,500 square feet. Under the ordinance all homes, regardless of size, are equal to one ERU, but commercial properties are assessed the fee based solely on square footage without a cap.

The fee is expected to generate about $70,000 annually.

Vote to remove the additional fee - obviously council didn't give a darn what their constituents thought and passed it anyway. People have had enough of these politicians not listening to what we want.

Obviously you're not paying attention. There was a public hearing which was announced in the paper, and the input was clearly pro-utility. Please take some time to try to understand the reason for it. I'm sure you'll agree if you study it.
