All about the amenities

Amenities, amenities, amenities! This is what you hear from the “Keep Sand Lake” committee. These amenities are great, for some. Not everyone in Sand Lake gets the amenities this group is all about. Not fair!

If you don’t have an alley, no extra plowing! If you don’t have leaves no leaf pick-up! No sidewalk or your sidewalk is not in the right area, no plowing. Do you get a tax break because you don’t get these services?

This committee keeps harping on these amenities! These amenities are expensive! 10+ mills too expensive!

As voters get ready to vote, please remember, at a time when we are all tightening our belts, when people are losing income, are these services worth the extra money? As Americans, we have learned to endure, give up extras we don’t need, move on to a better way. Sand Lake residents cannot afford a budget of $545,000 – $555,000! Do you realize this board spends about $1,800 per resident?

In addition, during these tough times our village council was able to purchase a truck for the DPW, paying cash! Did we really need a newer truck? Where did this money come from? Couldn’t this money have been used to pay down a debt? Lighten the tax load? Fix the leaking roof?

At the last election only 24 voters voted. Shouldn’t that tell you we don’t need this government? These 7 board members think they have Sand Lake residents’ good in mind. Do they?
