Before anyone decides to vote for either the fire or school bond levy I think it would be good for them to read this article that appeared in the WDN. http://www.williamsondailynews.com/view/full_...

I would like to let everyone know what is in the Fire Levy and the School Bond Levy proposed for vote on March 23, 2013.
The Fire Levy is the exact levy that was proposed last year. The rates are 2.34 cents for every \$1000.00 value of Class I property, 4.68 cents per \$1000.00 value of Class II property: your home, property, household good, swimming pool, out building and etc, 9.36 cents for every \$1000.00 value of Class III property: Your vehicles, and 9.36 cents for every \$1000.00 values of Class IV property. Assume you own your home and it is valued at \$75,000.00 which includes all your household goods, propery, out building, swimming pool, and etc you will have to pay a fee of \$35.10 on your home and household goods, then assume you just purchased a new vehicle or multiable vehicles totaling \$36,000 you will have to pay an additional \$33.69 for this. Adding these together you will be paying \$68.79 additional in taxes just for the fire levy fees. How many homes are only worth \$75,000 including everything in your home and out buildings? If yours are worth more then your tax would be greater.

Now let look at the School Levy. The first page says this levy is not an increase in taxes, but if you go to the second page it says "additional money derived from and increase in levy funds", then on to the last paragraph is says " The proposed additional rate of levy on each class of property per \$100.00 of valuation of such property shall be as follows: Class I 22.95 cents, Class II 45.90, Class III 91.80, and Class IV 91.80"
Let's assume then we own the same property as in the fire levy then we will have a tax rate on our homes of \$258.82, on our vehicle \$330.48. This would give us a new tax of \$589.30 just of the School levy. If we add these together we will be hit with a new tax on our property of \$658.09, and that is only if your property is worth what I have listed.
Why do you think Williamson is keeping this election hide and not letting our the information contained in these new levies? They don't want us to know what is being voted on in hopes no one will get out and vote. If you don't want higher taxes then get out and vote. I for one will be voting NO on both !!!
vote NO

I am against the tax hike 100%! We are the poorest county in Wv yet have the highest taxes! Sad thing is Mr. Wellman is for the tax hike! And I thought he was suppose to be for the people of Dingess? The mayor has failed us again!

Of course he's for the Bond Levy. He's one of the biggest supporters of the Politicians in the Mingo County Courthouse. He has to make himself look good to them. He does exactly what they tell him to do. You know we can get rid of the trash if only the Dingess citizens would just stick together. Beware, this should tell you something about Mr. Wellman. He is not a Leader, he is a follower of the politicians at the Courthouse. He doesn't care about Dingess, if he did he would not support that bunch in Williamson. He needs to worry about his community and not Williamson. I would not risk my reputation in my own community just to have a little recognition from the politicians in Williamson. They don't worry about Dingess until it comes election time and then they all of a sudden become your best friends. COME ON DINGESS, open your eyes. Dingess has intelligent people and smart enough not to fall for this junk.

Thats right taxpayer!!! If dingess will stick together we might start getting things done around here! Mr.Wellman has acted like the mayor for 50 years and in those 50 years nothings changed for the better! Only change is more drugs and were now under the communist control of team mingo! Sad thing is Mr. Wellman supports them communist rulers too! I heard he has a job in williamson were he now has a say so with deputies! What will that help with? Getting more drug heads out of jail?

You can look around and see who his friends are. Druggies are his most popular friends. Let one of them go to jail and he will break his neck to get them out of jail. But let this community need something and he WILL NOT HELP IN NO WAY TO GET WHAT THIS COMMUNITY NEEDS. You are right he was appointed to a position in the Courthouse. I think he is on the Civil Service Committee, along with Jeff Cline, another one of the Team Mingo Buddies. This Committee makes decisions regarding the Deputies when there is a problem. Well we know all too well what his vote will be. Whatever Team Mingo Tells him to do is exactly what he will do. RIGHT or WRONG. They got him for sure and it is only to make them think he has all the power in Dingess, when I know for a fact he does not have the control he thinks he has and Team Mingo knows this too. He has recognition because they only USE him. He needs to get his nose out of their butts and try to help his community. COME ON MAYOR AND WORK FOR THE PEOPLE OF DINGESS AND NOT THE POLITICIANS IN WILLIAMSON. THINK ABOUT IT, THIS IS YOUR COMMUNITY. The Williamson bunch does do nothing for Dingess. Just wait and see on election day he will be right there fighting as hard as he can for the BOND LEVY.....Just for recognition, THAT'S ALL. Come on Dingess let's show them he is not our BOSS and VOTE NO ON THE BOND LEVY. Let's show the Williamson politicians he has no power over us.

Regardless of what Mr. Wellman does or has done most people in this whole county cannot afford to pay these tax hikes and put more money in the hands of the politicians in Williamson. The election was just in Nov., they have got to come up with money to pay for the jobs and political favors that have promised. This is history, it has been going on for yrs. upon yrs. in this county and it is time people do something about it and quite setting at home paying out of our asses so the Williamson posse can provide for their sucks. Can I get a HELL YEAH on that?

I'm with you 100%, we need to keep this is the public's eyes so the state school board and the county commissioners can't keep this election a secret and sneak these levies by the voters.

And we have also been done wrong by Team Mingo on our City Water! everywhere else pays for only the water they use and we have to pay a flat fee regardless!!! This is rediculis!! Nowhere else had to pay the extra 50 after hookup and noone has to pay the higher water bill like us either!! Laurel Creek side wasnt done crappy like this!! If they dont use water they do not pay! We use no water and we still pay a flat fee of \$22.40.Hookup or not we pay!!This money didnt come from the county but came from the mines so why are we paying a high water bill that the mines created by messing our water up!!! Sounds to me like they want the money to create jobs for their buddys again!! Sounds like another scandal going by the infamous team mingo!!
