You need to be a much more informed "taxpayer". The City will provide this service upon request then add their cost to the home owners tax bill and collect the monies due when the house is sold.
I would have and have done this same thing. Nothing to do with character, but being a informed citizen which oblivously Lisa Babb is. Nice try...go smear someone else with your uneducated demeanor.
All taxpayers need to get informed and get involved and help us drive Ohio's recovery so that informed citizens, such as school board candidate Lisa Babb, never have to call the city to "service" their neighbor's home, which has been vacated due to financial misfortune.

Ohio families can't afford their masive property tax bills. And with the loss of over 400,000 jobs in Ohio during recent years, the growing, unsustainable cost of government is one of the biggest attacks on our middle class. Ohioans are tired of being badgered for higher taxes, and Springboro voters are just saying No to Lisa Babb's "tax and spend" agenda which is characteristic.

Remeber Lisa Babb urging her priority of "increased salaries and benefits" for union employees and promoting the fifth unnecessary school levy to just "tax the homeowner" to reset "district taxpayers' priorities?"

Uno Vote; NO Babb for Boro.

“And while sensitive to people struggling financially, Babb said some district taxpayers — who she sees in stores and restaurants — simply need to reset their priorities.”

bottom line, your post smacks of politics, has nothing to do with citizens' rights...
Everything about "politics" has everything to do with "citizens' rights!"

In 1960, Ohioans were more prosperous than almost three-fourths of the the rest of the country. But today, Ohioans are less prosperous than two-thirds of the rest of the country.

WHAT HAPPENED?

GOVERNMENT GREW!

Government grew too big and taxes were forced too high. Government in Ohio needs to shrink while becoming more efficient and effective. And, it needs to get out of the way so that private business can CREATE jobs. From February 2000 to February 2011, Ohio LOST more than 500,000 jobs, but state government grew by 36%!

This has to CHANGE. But change is difficult and most of us are reluctant to say YES to the unknown.(Even though we recognize that where we are is not where we want to be, STILL, we cling to the familiar in fear of losing what we have).

That's why Ohioans need a NEW way of doing business in our local and state government. Ohioans need a NEW law that gives government employees a real choice in whether or not to join a union.(Do you know that our local school board can only control approximately 15% of total school budgets because of state laws and union negotatiations that take the other 85% off the table?)
That's why Ohioans need to say YES to Issue 2 and keep Senate Bill 5. This NEW law gives government NEW flexibility to bring government pay in line with private sector pay and will help Ohio solve its financial woes.

Don't you agree that all citizens have a right to fairness and respect in the work place: whether or not we earn our pay in public service jobs or private sector jobs?

I agree with you ONLY in respect to Kohls. Babb maybe should win, just to learn things aren't as simple as they seem. Besides, Jesus could win, it won't get any NEW levies passed anyway.

All I need to know about Springboro School board candidates, Jim Rigano and David Petroni, I learned from their work as officers of Educate Springboro. During the past year, Jim Rigano and David Petroni have been actively involved with the school district and organized an effort that prompted the district to re-evaluate their financial outlook. The result of their involvement was that a projected $25 million deficit was transformed into a surplus of $6 million.

And that's all that I need to know, today, to know that on November 8, I will say YES, YES, to Jim Rigano and David Petroni!

Sorry, yesterday matters when you are talking about someone who is running for public office that has served before. Past actions and past history typically speak volumes about how someone is going to act in the future.

So, it is a very legitimate question to ask what did Mr. Rigano do during his previous tenure on school board? Haven't really read anything concrete yet......

At the Springboro Board of Education meeting on May 27, 2011, all Voters attending that public meeting saw and heard Jim Rigano of Educate Springboro stand up and introduce himself to board members with the "State of the Schools Presentation." And this video presentation can be viewed on the educate springboro website. There is nothing hidden, nor false, about school board candidate, Jim Rigano.

Jim Rigano and David Petroni have a proven record of public service to our schools and community and of saying Yes to our children FIRST budgeting.

Springboro voters are fortunate to have opportunity on November 8 to vote yes for Jim Rigano and David Petroni for members of Springboro Board of Education...where children come first.

Shame On Union

For the entire lifetimes of almost all Americans now living, government has had literally more money than it has known what to do with. Government has not had to reference the public on many issues of spending, because there was enough to satisfy all or most of the organized interests.
Now, the public must get back to setting priorities. Its various governments are no longer able to pay for everything anyone wants.
That brings us back to those 7.6 million unionized government employees.
It is truly unfortunate that so many people across this nation depend for their livelihoods on an employer that is ridiculously overextended.
No one hates them for that. No one is blaming them for the fiscal shortfall that afflicts every level of government. They aren't the policymakers; they're just the people who bought into the supposition that government employment would always be a safe harbor, even in economic storms. That supposition has turned out to be false.
Today, Ohioans are debating whether to repeal Senate Bill 5, a law that would begin making necessary adjustments in how the state and its localities manage the public payroll.
Public employee unions, lacking any argument rooted in fiscal sanity, are trying to make this about "hatred."
Ohioans shouldn't fall for that. We all know plenty of people who are at risk of losing their jobs in the inevitable downsizing of government. They're friends and neighbors, and we don't begrudge any of them a living. We just can't pay all of them to work for us anymore.
