In the classified ad section of the times bulletin this morning there is a legal notice announcing the city desires to place on the ballot to the voters a water park for $3,000,000.00. Then they declare it an emergency.
What makes a water park an emergency? How is this legally an emergency? Haven't they been working on this for a year? So why is this an emergency. It sounds like the administration is trying to conceal running this through?
What gives Kelly?

thanks idiots, never thought I say that, lol,, really emergency??? I agree, what gives Kirby?
economy in the toilet=emergency
an unsafe, toxic, eyesore of a building on MainSt.=emergency
police and fire funding=emergency
a soon to be outdated public toilet bowl that cannot generate enough revenue to keep it "afloat", haha, that will be useless in a few years just like the old pool=folly, folly, folly
plus the money tax payers will have paid over the years to keep it open for the "public" would pay for folks to have their own pool
and the powers that be wonder why everyone moves out if and when the can!!!

Declaring an emergency isn't a tornado approaching kind of thing. It's method used to push issues to a vote more quickly than the typical 3 readings (1 1/2 months). I agree that "Declaring an emergency" is excessively used.

"Declaring an emerency" is a procedural way of bypassing the standards that council has created for doing business. By "declaring an emerency" this piece of legislation does not have to sit for 30 days before it becomes law. It becomes law immediately.
As for three reading, council could, and has done in the past, suspended the rules to pass legislation on its "first and final" reading.

thanks for the info, can anyone tell me what reasoning council is using to think burdening tax payers for this is a good idea?

Here, I am declaring an emergency! How about we pass a law to get rid of some of the hundreds of cats that are running all over Van Wert and destroying property, including ours! Right now I need that "extra" money that "this taxpayer" has to clean up our vehicles and other outdoor property from the cats spraying and dumping their feces. Some of them are feral and some are "owned". Tell you what, you start charging cat owners for cat licenses and kennel license or whatever you call it, like I have to buy for my dogs then maybe you will have your money for a water park. I am in favor of a city pool but I would like to see this city get some issues cleaned up. I have been born and raised here and have paid "plenty" of taxes but I sure as ...heck can't get any help on keep the freakin' cats from destroying our property!

The emergency legislation is just typical van wert bullshit.They see a way to improve the appearance of our town by adding the aquatics ctr.They don't care about people struggling to get by,to feed there familys,to pay rent or make a house payment,to pay utilities,etc.Our mayor and counsel would sooner kiss the asses of van werts ten cent millionares who..are heading up thedrive to get the pool put in.To please the chosen few that think they know what is best for Van wert.Ive paid taxes for 52 years to this town.If this aquatics ctr gets passed, Van wert,you can kiss my butt goodbye!
