There is a non-binding referendum for Midlothian residents concerning taxes on the April 9th ballot.
DON'T VOTE FOR AGAINST THE REFERENDUM. THE WAY THE REFERENDUM IS WORDED MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE MIDLOTHIAN VOTER TO SAY NO MORE TAXES AT ALL.
JUST SKIP THE REFERENDUM OR YOUR TAXES WILL GO UP AGAIN AFTER THE CURRENT ROUND OF TAX INCREASES IS COMPLETED

Taxes always go up, and it is physically impossible for voters to stop that from happening. Voting yes to this referendum puts the cap back on the year to year increases. This is currently being discussed in another thread as well. A yes vote puts a lesser of 5% or the CPI yearly cap on property tax increases. A no vote leaves no restrictions on property tax raises since a home rule municipality has the power to raise without restriction. The village is attempting to give up this specific power via this referendum. Simply put, if the voters want a restriction on property tax increases, the vote is yes, if not, the vote is no. No property tax increase at all will never happen in this state or country....just a fact of life.

Fact Check is correct! We must vote YES on this referendum, The cleverly written letter received a week ago confuses the resident. If you vote NO our property taxes can go as high as the sky. Vote YES YES YES to stop them. 4 years ago we came together as a community to try and keep it afloat and approved this temporary increase. Now they want to keep the cash cow going and are using deceptive wording to do so. Don't let them get away with this. They are taxes us right out of this town. The quality of life as a resident here is going down fast, we are circling the drain. Open your eyes and look around you. I have, and don't like what I see.
