Another letter: No to police levy

Editor:

I want to comment on the new tax levy for the Buckeye Lake police department. First, we are all experiencing difficult times. The economy is spinning out of control.

Second, people are losing their jobs and homes. And now with water coming, we will have to make room for it and higher sewer rates in our budgets. A lot of village residents simply can not afford another increase in their taxes.

And as for the village doing something about dilapidated houses, very little has been done. The yellow house with the tarp on the roof that was an issue in the last election is still there.

The village has some nice police officers, but I believe that they would have to agree that times are tough. Vote "No" on new taxes on Nov. 4.
