WOODRIDGE ISSUE 5

This is in answer to "Woodridge Seeking Passage of Levy" as published in the current issue of the West Side Leader.

Is our school board part of the solution, or part of the problem? Get ready to dig into your pockets. If you vote yes on Issue 5, it will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $286.65 per year for four years, but that's not the main issue.

Our representatives on our school board are at least part of the problem. The main issue is that these same people will continue the poor planning that has created this emergency for our schools.

When we commented on this subject in October, we predicted that our school board would threaten us with cuts in service.

In November, Woodridge voters defeated a similar proposal with 57% of the total vote. Our school board ignored that. But our prediction has now come to pass, and the emergency is here.

Woodridge Local School District Treasurer Tom Morehouse recently said "If the (emergency) levy does not pass, we will be forced to reduce services to children more and more. We will be looking at what is required by state law and what we provide additionally. At some point, the state will come in and take control of the district, losing any local control our community has." Think about that for a moment. Is this the kind of planning that is a good example for our children? Our school board is at least part of our problem, not part of the solution.

Is the board thinking that they will win this time because we will be too busy to vote?

On the Tuesday, May 8 Primary Election, please vote no on the five year $4 million dollar "emergency" levy, and disappoint the people who think you won't show up.

Say no again. Lets not throw good money after bad.

Marty and Marilyn Griffith

NEWS FROM THE PENINSULA FOUNDATION

There is much happening at the Peninsula Foundation these days. As most of you know, the Peninsula Foundation owns a number of historic properties in the Village. For any of you that own a historic property, you know they hold their challenges and require some extra work in order to maintain them.

We have had a number of businesses decide to follow another direction leaving us with vacancies to fill. So this winter, we have been busy taking on some interior renovation work, as well as addressing safety issues throughout our properties. We have hired a new maintenance supervisor with a background as general contractor to help facilitate the repairs and renovations. We have much work to do, but we are making major progress and we are excited about the opportunities and possibilities for new small businesses in the Village.

We will be embarking on capital improvement fundraising campaigns for the renovation of the Bronson Church Building Steeple and for raising funds as a matching grant we received from the State of Ohio to make the G.A.R. Hall ADA compliant. We are renovating the small white house on Main Street and we are looking forward to a new and exciting business moving into this prime location.

So yes… we have many challenges, but we look at these as opportunities. Opportunities to add to the unique small business mix in Peninsula and to maintain the culture of Peninsula through historic preservation of our buildings.

For more information about these projects, please visit our website at www.peninsulahistory.org and look for further updates in Your Community News as well as from our Peninsula Record Newsletter.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?

Why are a small group of people so intent on having Peninsula build and operate its own sewage treatment plant? We`re a tiny little community — so small that we farm out our building department, along with our Health Department, and our Court. And yet, there is a group who thinks we should build and operate our own sewer system?

And, they want to build it in an area that had catastrophic flooding twice in the last 20 years. (If you didn`t live in the Village when that happened — take a drive over to Terry Lumber and look at the water line on the wall that`s still there.) Next time, there will be raw sewage with the mud and the tree limbs. Who pays for that when it happens?

I met with the EPA on April 20, 2018. Here is what EPA says:
  • EPA has no jurisdiction over homes in the Village unless there are four units or more.
  • Home Septic Systems are totally and completely legal and acceptable for every residential property that has one, two, or three units. The cost for a new system was estimated at $10,000 to $15,000.
  • EPA has no axe to grind with the businesses in town. Most of them are in full compliance, and the others are working with EPA to find solutions.
  • Even if there was a problem with the businesses (and there isn`t), and even if it got ugly (which it wouldn`t), they will not force the Village to do anything. It`s between EPA and the business.
If Peninsula decides to design and build a central collection system, Peninsula should work with Summit County.

Right now, a small group of people have decided that half the Village needs to build a central sewer system, and that half of the Village has to pay for the planning and construction. They`ve already decided that payments will stretch for 20 years just for the design. And it doesn`t matter what people can afford, or what is fair.

As one member of Council said — "if you can`t afford it, it`s time for you to move on."

How did we get here?

A few years ago, a group of businesses and the National Park approached Russ Pry, who was the County Executive and asked for some help. They couldn`t expand their businesses because of EPA concerns. Could the County help? Executive Pry told me that he wanted to help "a regional asset" (the Park — not the Village) expand and thrive, so he wanted to help the businesses get better wastewater treatment. And here was the best part — all of the houses near the businesses could piggy-back on the business project. Then Russ died.

(No one has ever discussed whether expanding the businesses is a good idea for the folks who live here.)

About two years ago, Mike Weant, who works at the County Sewer Department, estimated the cost of a sewer system at $8 million (plus or minus 20%). He told me that Peninsula couldn`t afford that, and that some other solution had to be found. His opinion was that the most a home owner could be asked to pay was `about the cost of a good septic system`, which he estimated at that time would be $8,000 to $12,000.00. (Yesterday the EPA estimated a range of $10,000 to $15,000.)

But, when I ask the sewer advocates how high the price could rise before this construction project wouldn`t go forward, I am told that there is no cap, because "you have to clean up your wastewater no matter how much it costs" and "it`s a utility — it`s the same thing with gas and electric — you have to pay for it, no matter how much it costs."

Well — no — every other utility has programs for those who can`t afford the service. And you can always turn off the lights and save money. You can`t do that with this sewer plan. You pay what you are told to pay — even if you never flush. (And you pay the same rate that your neighbor with all those teenagers pays). How is that fair? How is that reasonable? How is that right?

Just this past week, the Village of Clinton (which is about twice the size of Peninsula) signed up with Summit County to build and operate a sewer system for their Village. Homeowners will pay $11,629.00 over 10 years — right in that $8/12 or $10/15 range). And if they have a working septic system now, they can use it for the next seven years before hooking in, which gives them 17 years in total to pay the bill. (The arithmetic comes out to about $57 a month). The whole project is costing 7.3 million — but Clinton is only paying 5.5 million. And Clinton doesn`t have to operate the plant.

When are WE THE PEOPLE going to get to discuss and decide? When are basic questions going to be answered? When is it going to be discussed and voted on — with everyone having a voice?

Here`s what I think — it`s time for the community as a whole to be asked and not told. It`s time for the community as a whole to decide whether our community builds and operates a sewer plant.

If we decide to build, then we need to find a way to help out our neighbors who cannot afford the full cost, and we need to credit those people who have paid for and maintained legal and operating septic systems — because it`s unfair to punish them. Right now, there are more than a dozen families with deep and important roots in this community — who made Peninsula what it is — who are going to be forced off their land. Right now, there are many families with totally proper septic systems who are going to be forced to dig them up (at their own cost) and throw them away.

It`s wrong. Just plain wrong. Sure, there are homes that need to upgrade their septic system. (And NO, there aren`t any failing systems in the proposed district. Clinton had 71!) We should be working WITH each of those property owners to get their systems working right — it`s not too much to ask in a town this size with the history of community we have. Not now, and not ever, should we say — if you can`t afford it, you need to move on. Never.

VOTE YES ON ISSUE 1

Did you know that Summit County is divided into four separate congressional districts? Not one of those elected officials actually live in Summit County? That happened when our congressional districts were redrawn after the census in 2010. It`s called gerrymandering, a process by which our political districts are drawn to favor one political party or candidate over the other. It`s the cause of much of the hyper-partisan politics we are now witnessing. On May 8 voters can fix the gerrymandering problem in Ohio by voting YES ON ISSUE 1.

The language for Issue 1 was the result of negotiation and compromise and included leading members of the Fair Districts coalition. Last summer the Fair Districts/Fair Elections coalition began an Initiative to put a measure on the ballot in November to change how our congressional districts our drawn. As momentum gathered and over 220,000 signatures collected, our state legislature decided to put a Referendum on the ballot this May. If approved by voters, congressional districts will be drawn with input from both major political parties with guidelines that will eliminate the worst excesses of gerrymandering. The process will be a transparent one allowing for input from citizens in how our district lines are drawn.

Placing Issue 1 on the ballot was strongly approved by Democrats and Republicans and is actively supported by Senator Vernon Sykes (D) and Senator Frank LaRose (R).

A YES vote on ISSUE 1 is a vote for fair elections, moderation in politics and better representation. It deserves your vote.

To the Editors:

Is there a list anywhere that denotes the names of the awards that the community gives to recognize those who have served the community?

Seems often that I am reading of those in town who have been awarded for different services, before and after death.

I didn`t even know that many of these awards were available!

Clearly I am happy for those that are singled out and praised! However, what is the criteria? As to those of us not in the loop, could we nominate resident and/or family member? Are there forms to fill out? Is there a panel who decides who is worthy? Does the family merely make a request?

As usual, I am curious… And of course my sense of fair play tells me that all who have served should have the opportunity to be awarded.

Would appreciate a public response. Thanks so much.

WASTEWATER UPDATE

April 11 Public Update: Thank you to the 70+ residents and business owners that attended the Wastewater Public Update this past week at the Boston Township Hall. We received several question cards that were covered during the meeting. We will get those questions, and the answers, posted to the Village website soon. If you could not make the April 11 session, no worries. These Public Updates will continue throughout the project so there will be several more opportunities for updates on the project cost, schedule, and for you to provide input to the engineers and Village leadership. Your attendance, comments, and questions are important as we work through the process of design engineering, applying for grants, and working with the public on a payment scenario that works for the community.

Funding: As we have mentioned often during these project updates, the Village has very few grant opportunities that we will qualify for due to our high Median Household Income (MHI). Most of the grants available for a wastewater project were put in place to assist communities with low MHIs where affordability is a challenge for the vast majority of the community. But there are a few grants that we just might be successful getting. We have submitted an application to the Army Corp of Engineers, which will be reviewed this summer. Also, the Village plans to submit a grant application to the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) this July for $750,000. If we are successful with just one of these grants, initial estimates reduce the burden on a household about $15 per month. We have been working hard to get letters of support, and position ourselves to be in a competitive position for these grants. Completing Design Engineering is one of those important steps that will better position the Village for the OPWC grant. Recently we received letters of support from Friends of Crooked River and the Summit County Health Department, which will be included with our grant applications along with the letters we have already received from Senators Brown and Portman, and the CVNP.

Sewer Fee: For those of you that own property in the wastewater district, you have received your first quarterly sewer bill. If anyone is concerned that this $15 per month sewer fee creates a burden or hardship for your budget, please feel free to contact the Village Fiscal Officer at 330-657-2151, to confidentially discuss your situation and see if we can provide you with assistance.

Questions? Never hesitate to ask your questions! There are several people that can help. Contact any member of the Wastewater Core Team:
Dee Holody: dholody@yahoo.com or at M: 216-346-8753
Bill Clifton: cliftowh@hotmail.com
Mary Booth, marymarybooth@yahoo.com
You can also contact John Stiegel, Village Fiscal Officer, or Martin Kuboff, Village Administrative Assistant at 330-657-2151
