(based on a 2 cent per $100 assessed property value tax)
Many LaVale residents have suggested these improvements to our community but we donít have sufficient funds to make these possible. In year 2000, our county had over 12,000 children. More than 600 children use Holly Field and Lions' Field. We have lights that arenít being turned on, parks that require routine maintenance, trails that because of their poor condition are being under-utilized, and a main street (National Highway with a daily traffic flow of 16,050 cars) without any identifying characteristics, all because we, as of yet, lack funding. The State Highway Administration has agreed to contribute $307,900 toward installing ornamental lights on National Highway but we canít accept their offer because... we, as of yet, lack funding.
The LaVale Civic Improvement Association would like you to vote in favor of installing a 2 cent per $100 assessed property value tax to assist in maintaining and improving our community. In dollar amounts, that means that a property owner with a property assessed at $100,000 would pay only $20.00 a year toward our general fund. (Thatís one family meal at McDonalds!) This rate would yield $56,000 a year! Through the concerted efforts of our residents we could maintain and improve our lovely community.
The county will be conducting an opinion poll by card for each registered voter in our district. One letter is being sent to each household which includes a voter, and each voter will receive a card. Your response to this poll will better assist the County Commissioners in assessing LaVale's needs and wants.
To support LaVale residents in making the best decisions for our community the LaVale Civic Improvement Association will be conducting three informative presentations at Cash Valley Elementary School on:
Saturday, April 2 (2:00 Ė 4:00)
Thursday, April 7 (7:00 Ė 9:00)
Saturday, April 9 (2:00 Ė 4:00)
As always, your comments, suggestions, and questions are always welcome.
