From Lakewood Village Trustee Gene Furey:
The process for managing the Village finances requires the following steps:
- Passage of a levy for the coming fiscal year.
- A series of Budget Workshops by the Village Board to review all revenues and every expenditure in detail.
- Final passage of the Budget before the end of the fiscal year.
So far, only one of the “Lakewood Tax Fighter” Board candidates has seen their way to attend these meetings.
Although their platform states their commitment to reduce taxes, they have shown no interest in Village finances.
Each was sent the Board agenda and Budget detail.
There is no reason to not attend…………except not caring.
The Village has always developed balanced budgets and are rightfully proud of our S&P AAA Bond Rating.
We have one of the lowest tax rates in our county and are prudent with our finances.
You have a choice. Vote for people who care enough to take this process seriously!
For Experience, Integrity and Vision, vote for John Schrauf and Gene Furey.
