Lakewood Planning to Provide SSA Petition

Lakewood Village Hall

Lakewood Village Hall

The Village of Lakewood is not required to provide opponents of the Special Service Area a petition on which they would have to obtain signatures of

  1. 51% of the registered voters AND
  2. 51% of the property owners.

But having spent money from the expiring SSA to bring a new, smaller SSA into bring, Village Administrator Catherine Peterson has emailed me that it will make such a petition available.

That is in the tradition (required by state law) of local governmental bodies’ supplying petitions to those who propose tax hikes subject to a backdoor referendum.

That will diminish any legal expenses if opponents decide to seek the necessary signatures to kill the proposal.

  1. Does anyone have any info or can confirm the rumor that there are plans to turn the Lakewood police departments, prime spot on the lake, into a marina/restraint?
