I see that Richland Twp has put through an ordinance stating that the residents will now be responsible for footing the recycling bills effective April 1st.
But, I can remember back around 1993?? when the residents were required to pay $24.00 per yr for recycling. But, because several resident did not pay, the cost was then incorporated into the property taxes. My question is: why are we now being asked to foot the bill, when it has been inflated in our municipal property taxes for the past 20+ years?

Because the elected officials in Richland Township are Criminals. Also, the Police Dept. is corrupt.

They say it's due to lack of grant money from the state.

Total BS.

How about the supervisors pay their own health insurance. That would save us $72,000 a year.

You can't say they are criminals unless you can prove it.

However, they are slugs/parasites. Each of them has their own business and they could purchase their own insurance;

Orloff - self-employed CPA
Staats - Cici's Pizza. He's corporate, so I don't know why he isn't using the insurance from his employer instead of fleecing us.
Arnold - self-employed cleanup business. I don't know if it's still operational, since he is employed by the township.

At least Orloff and Staats should buy their own, but they are no different than career welfare slugs who know how to work the system. Orloff once let it out that he runs for election for the freebies. How nice.

They are criminals. Just look at RASA PARK.

This election would be a good time to send a message to the taxpayers employees that we can't afford to waste anymore money on them or their harebrained ideas.

This election, vote Orloff out and the other two knuckleheads will fall in line. Making them pay for their/family insurance is long overdue.

All deals, discussions, and decision making are done in private. When they have a BOS meeting, the outcome has already been determined.

Sunshine Law? What Sunshine Law?

Since when has that ever stopped Orloff?

so more than likely our trash bill will increase and Richland Township will still be charging us for recycling pick-up?

We need to group together and tell them we are not going to do it. If they threaten liens against us? We take them to court. We need to throw them out. It's gone on too long. It's only the one's who benefit through political patronage, that keep them in office.

That is correct! So, what can be done about it? It's got to be unconstitutional for government to be double dipping off of the taxpayers like this? Anyone know????? Additionally, Why should a one person household with two milk jugs per wk have to pay the same for recycle collection as a family of 6 household??

Even though the Federal Grant for the recycling program expired, the township has ample surplus funds to pay for the program. There is no reason for a township of 12K residents to have a $3M surplus. It's almost criminal.

That was brought up before the 2009 tax increase went through.

Orloff still wants to build a new township building next to the police station and the county government buildings. We need a surplus with a good bond rating to accomplish this.

Orloff is a RINO who has no qualms spending other peoples' money.

That's probably correct about Orloff wanting to build a new office bldg, full-time police force and be a self-sustaining township, but, with the way our economy has declined things must be re-assessed.
Its time to put those WANTS on hold and address what our practical NEEDS are in the here and now and I say its time to put our tax money that has in the bank earning nothing.....to good use!!

Why don't they have recycling collection bins at the township and just have all of the residents bring their recycling there. Once or twice a month (depending on the amount) have it picked up and use the reserve money in the township bank accounts(hope its really still there?)to pay the bill.
