Big tax hikes, few services

August 25, 2013

Once you get past the fact the sidewalks may not be plowed or the leaves will not be picked up, you may wonder exactly why there is a village government for Forestville....

"...they are the only ones who know how to run things and not be neck deep in debt..."

Then why do they all get federal subsidies?

Detailed analysis needed. Don't just jump to conclusions. I watched a village board do just that by discontinuing village garbage pickup and contracting it out. End result - private contractor cost more. Village went back to collecting it themselves in a few years and cost came down.

This argument reminds me of GOP/RW/TPer response to our health insurance deficiencies: there are always emergency rooms even if you don't have health insurance.

What the morons don't tell you is that ERs was the MOST expensive channel for health care -- it isn't free and someone still has to cover all the costs.

Private contractors to clean village sidewalks and rake leaves for the village is equally moronic.

Steinerdzzz..."golly i sure do love what govt has become. experts at making everyone stupid..."...seeing how, throughout your life and even today, you've been guzzling from the government faucet, yes, you are proof positive the government makes people stupid. In fact, arguably, the more from the government you take, the stupider you are...

Quit blaming Government for your intellectual situation, Steiner! You were stupid long before they did anything to you.

christopher is defensive. its a simple question he says.classic liberal. we need to hear from cronig, he always gives simple, hah, flowery language. here is what will happen, a quote will be produced. People like christopher will dispute its authenticity. We are talking about the govt( or the children,sobbing, weeping ) he says. The process will continue till the pro dissolver people are worn down. Victory for the govt lovers like christopher. christopher, answer this, how did you govt types get such an exalted opinion of yourself? Surely it cant be from invention or taxing, as the govt has not invented anything but poverty and raised taxes to great heights. all by the unneeded , ignorant, inflated ego of our govt leaders. and union to boot. golly i sure do love what govt has become. experts at making everyone stupid and poor.

I asked a simple question that only requires a simple answer. A Steiner diatribe, by definition, IS a SIMPLE answer, but in a far different manner.

christopher loves the govt. he wants quotes, like judeye wants real science for global warming. Hey christopher, the govt people work for us, not the citizens for them. In the govt employees eyes, the citizens are mere worms.you cant ask a govt employe to work, thats illegal ! In erie county they actually said when the govt works then erie county will work ! yes, that shows what an inflated opinion they have of themselves.forestville is nothing, its govt is nothing and could be eliminated over night. Noone would notice or care. hey exalted govt employee, exactly how did you get such an inflated opinion of yourselves ? will the crops actually grow without you ?

Forestville is the model for the rest of the villages and towns in this area. Less services and way more taxes.

I want to see the costs, an actual formal bid, for all of those services to replace what the village currently supplies. That's almost imperative for those making a decision like this. There may be more things than those mentioned to be investigated as well. Anecdotes aren't enough to make a decision like this.
