You are right Kelly, my husband and I did start the audit petition. We have never tried to hide that. As far going door to door trying to get petitions for anything else you are wrong... And yes I did question why Diane is getting paid so often and so much. Anyone who knows anything knows she is not there enough to get her regular pay much less to get overtime. The audit would not have had to be done if they would have posted our semi-annual financial statements as they are required to by state statute. My husband and I have asked for paperwork before the audit was started and were told NO from Diane Warren. She has no right to sit behind that desk and refuse us citizens anything. This our city. We live in here and pay taxes unlike her and the mayor. She told us she didnt have to give us anything. WRONG ANSWER!!!! I do no ones dirty work in here. Not Jennifers or anyone elses.. I am not a follower. When we started this petition I did not know her Toni or this fischer person.(still have never laid eyes on fischer). We did this on our own because we have a right to know whats going on in our city. If you have been at the last couple of meetings then you know yourself that we have all been told we are welcome to come down and look at or have paperwork to do with this city. I called and asked the fine mayor for the sewer expenditures and income for the month of June. HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT FOR! When I reminded him that he stated we could see this he hung up on me. I called back and was told he had 72 hours. FINE. When I did go down to get it the wonderful city clerk told me... YOU HAVE THE PAPERWORK,YOU FIGURE IT OUT! WOW, how professional she is. I have told everyone that I have a problem with what I think about them to thier face. So if there is nothing to hide why dont they let us look at paperwork or give us what we ask for? And why wont they face us with a meeting? Royce came to our house and told us he knows there is a problem with Diane and he has had to jump her ass in the past. He was supposed to come back with paperwork to go over with us the next night... NEVER SEEN HIM... CODY SAID THE SAME THING... NEVER SEEN HIM. If these people want to run for office then they need to stick to thier word when they get in and not LIE!!! DONT TELL PEOPLE YOU WILL DO SOMETHING AND NOT DO IT! I have welcomed them to prove me wrong but they havent yet.

Nobody is ever at city hall. But the city employees make 100's of dollars a week. We need to get these lying, stealing people out of there before they steal all the money and quit!!'

Follow the money trail. The work done 15 years ago should make O.V. better than ever. The sewer system was designed to be paying for itself and other improvements. No reason to be in the red. Poor management and lack of caring is what keeps destroying any chance of improvement.

I live here and a lot of the comments you people are making are offensive. I don't care if you DID come from here, live here, or not. Not everyone in the Village is trash... We are hard working people, and just like in any low income community, yes there are people that are more than questionable, but many of us have jobs, try to take care of our families, and do the best that we can... The problem is not the Village; the problem is certain people just like in any community.

I know there is fishy things around here and the longer we have lived here the roads are worse the kids paint all over the stop signs (that are left) and the road signs are gone! Some houses are kept well and then sone are just plan trashy! I guess I need to get involved! Can anyone give me info on who the board/ mayor are? When are meetings let's make some changes!

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THE SEWER SYSTEM? When we left it was one of the best things OV had going for itself.
They stole the money and didnt use it to repair it when needed.They partyed and drank it up.Not getting new pumps and parts.Now the City is wide open,no cops to patrol the streets,and burgulize the place everywhere if they want.
It went to crap

after Mayor Paul left,two Marshals tried to stop the money bleeding.And where run off.The one in the little green car in frount.And the tall skinny one.If you ask where the money is when you are a cop,they can you.He told me.And if you dont write alot of tickets,you are canned.

that someone stood up to them a..holes!! I hope he wins and takes them for all they got. All they do is screw people over and get rid of the honest ones. Just like they got rid of Ray Williams, he did an awesome job keeping our roads cleared day or night and even made sure the school buses got in and out.
