Re: Dissolution Vote:
#1: HAVE A PLAN. Current law used for B'port vote did NOT have STATE limitations, nor "guidance" in place.
#2: Hold PUBLIC meetings with TOWNSHIP officials as to what will the township be held for, as to village legacy obligations and debts.
#3: LOOK at history of why a village was INCORPORATED. Most of those reasons no longer apply in today's tech levels.
#4: DO make two work-ups. One, showing savings when dissolution is achieved.#2, same money record if NO dissolving takes place.
#5: GOVERNING CAPTION is whether the DISTINCTION and RANK of village standing is affordable to taxpayers. This must ALSO be judged against how present services are provided.
#6: Taking all results "over-lay" with future objectives w/w/o village charter in effect.
#7: ALTERNATIVES need to be researched and DISCUSSED. ALL major headings must be addressed, and rated against whether there is enough positive force to retain present(??) form, or dissolve?
#8: Check the public purse against FUTURE PROJECTIONS as to village economy and environment. Sustainable, or not??
Finally, PRAY FOR WISDOM. Choice taken now impacts future generations.
