What about Nelson Township?
In regards to the disincorporation of the Village of Sand Lake: Why are the citizens of Nelson Township excluded from the vote? We are the ones whose taxes will be raised! We are also the ones who will be forced to inherit their debts. What about grants awarded to the village? Are we to be expected to reimburse the government? The villagers of Sand Lake should be asking: “What is the TRUE reason behind this movement to disincorporate?”
We are ALL affected by the current economic status of our state. Are we not still in a democracy? When will the largest population affected be allowed their say? One of our country’s earliest battle cries was: “NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!”
