Jim Beechy Millersburg Council Member

"I am asking the residents of the village of Millersburg to consider voting yes for the income tax that is on the ballot," said Huebner. If it fails again in March, there will be no loose leaf pickup this fall nor will there be an annual cleanup day. Streets will not be paved, road cracks will not be sealed, storm sewers will be left unrepaired and storm cleanup will be impossible to handle with the village's current staff and deteriorating equipment, said Huebner. With no money to fund them, these cuts in services must occur if the voters would reject the income tax increase, said council member Jim Beechy. "If it comes down to the fact that we don't get an increase, then the measures that we're talking about become reality," he said. "We are going to end up doing what the citizens want, it's just that the job becomes so much harder without any money for the upkeep of the village."
