Admin Program: Lower Your Levy, Library!Sep 13th, 2011 | By tgreenwalt | Category: Upcoming Events
Stephen Bero, Director of the Warren-Newport Public Library District, will facilitate a panel to address the increasingly widespread animus in this country that not only should government agencies not raise taxes, they should in fact lower them.
On the panel will be Sam Yingling, Avon Township Supervisor, who will talk about how and why he and his town board reduced its levy last year; a report from Cindy Fuerst, Director of the Vernon Area Public Library District, on her board’s decision to keep their levies flat for the last three years; State Representatives Carol Sente of District 59 and Ed Sullivan of District 51, who will give insight into current and planned legislation affecting the PTELL; and Steve Larson, Senior Financial Advisor/Executive Vice President of Ehlers & Associates, who will explain the financial consequences of a lower levy. There will be time for discussion after the panelists’ presentations.
