Wondering why we got a City of Monroe Fire and Paramedic Station Millage Proposal in the mail.

We're in Monroe Township. Unless we got annexed out and wasn't told. ;)

We best not have been......I have been trash talking since I moved to our neighborhood in 2001.   :D

Sounds like a plan may pass for the Road funding...  just in time for winter!

...  7.3 cent tax
20% raise in registration fee's

Not sure if anything else was hidden but I guess it will get our gas back in line being 10 higher than Ohio... as that had gone down recently.

I've noticed that too...   

Three out of the last four times we've used our Kroger Reward points we've bought gas in Monroe rather than Toledo!  And it has been not just 'even' but actually lower by .109 to .129! 

I kind of wondered what is up with that ??? ??? ???

Must be a trick!!!

Democrats were almost unanimous in their opposition, saying the plan was not only fiscally irresponsible for shifting $600 million in general fund dollars to the roads without identifying where those cuts would come from, but also that it doesn't get fully phased in until 2021.

"The majority party is saying it’s okay to kick that fiscal plan down the road," said House Minority Leader Tim Greimel. "The worst part of this entire package, it won’t even be phased in till 2021. This is a sham, it’s a joke, it’s a pretense.".

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

I see from yesterdays MN - the City took some advice I gave on here!

Hired a director of communications to actually do things that they've been outsourcing such as the flawed campaign for the new fire station.

I thought the Firemen did a great job of promoting it.

I even told them so.

I am just not going to vote more taxes on myself again.

The Bridges were my last burst of generosity.

I have had several discussions around the family table regarding libraries and the usefulness/purpose to a community.  I told my family that had I had the internet at my finger tips while being a student that I most likely would have never visited the library.

I see value in a building that has several computer seats for internet research for those who do not have home access, recent news/magazine publications.......but outside of that, not much should be required. 

Personally, I would not vote for an increase in taxes to support or expand the library system.  I think they should be downsizing.

People tend to forget that the library gets hundreds of thousands of dollars from the state of Michigan every year in the form of overweight fines from MDOT.  They don't need additional funding.  Drive by the weigh scales and keep in mind every reuck around back is contributing to the library.....

I would never vote for any tax-millage-or endowment for them.

I think it would be more beneficial to make the county a WIFI Hotspot - we'd probably all die of cancer - but oh well - and the ones who couldn't afford a computer could come in and get their free one.  I think it would probably cost less.

I can access the U of M Library collection from my laptop.

All the books I read are in electronic format now.

Why do we need more buildings at this point of history?

I went to a meeting and said that.

I suggested using the empty third floor of the City Hall to make a technology library, with computers wall to wall.  They could get the computers donated by corporations who are updating their equipment - it would be a nice tax write off for them.

They all looked at me like I was a retard.

Whatever.

Someones out of touch, and its not me.

We already have a place for that in the City of Monroe.

Its called the Sawyer House.
