To simplify it to terms everyone should be able to relate to starting at a personal level, when your long term bonded debt exceeds your assets twice over, it is time to cut your losses and bite the bullet. If you don't, you only perpetuate the problem. It exists in our society from the bottom to the top level. The bottom of the chain pays the highest prices. Example... people in Sunset have the highest property values yet figure there is nothing wrong with expecting the entire town to pay extra taxes for 'their enhanced summer police protection when they aren't even permanent residents of the town or county and don't have a vote. A very flawed thought process. Bottom line.. you lose services no matter which way you choose. You need to decide which is more beneficial in the long term! Yes, you do need state help in evaluating the process and deciding the outcome for the benefit of all, not just a few with dollar signs to support their views( as in homes plus rental properties )

Have you pulled a copy of the CC budget yet Judeye and researched the CH portion? It will take you only about an hour to see that the CH does NOT generate a surplus. To quote a regular on the Observer site,"look it up"!

"Rogers recommended the committee have a third party prepare a feasibility study similar to that done by the Center for Government Research for the village of Perrysburg prior to the issue coming to a vote."

I wonder why he would put faith in the CGR findings on this issue when it does not appear he did so on the issue of the sale of the County Home. The report that the Center did re the HOME clearly states that the home operates at a SURPLUS. One conclusion that another study conducted by the Center on sales of County operated Homes to private companies stated that about 25% of the current residents are displaced due to their medical and/or emotional needs.

Hope he truly does have faith in the research studies and will revisit, re read the report that was conducted on the sale of our County Home before he votes.
