looks like we have another personality sighting. I see all these post with useful information about about Home Rule. Plus there is going to be a hugh informational meeting this Tuesday, which I can only hope will educate the residents on the pros and cons of Home Rule. Then we have posts that provide ZERO information about why Home Rule would be so bad.
Fact is research shows that Home Rule "powers" are seldom abused by the administration. We as a Village have to be more active with our town and how things are run. If Home Rule passes and for some reason the current administration trys to abuse that power then we VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE and put people in there that are going to have our best interests.

Did not know that, I thought the meeting would be at the Village Hall on Tues. Aug. 17th at 7pm. Please someone confirm where it is at? Thanks.
You should have received a post in the mail to confirm the meeting at the Terrace Center. Every resident will get one.

No Home Rule, less services, period!! Think, if you can before you start scaring residents about false theories. In case you didn't know the definition of a theory, here it is...."theory: an educated guess" but in your case, "an uneducated guess"!

Home Rule would be good if we had some one in office that wouldn't abuse it. But right now we have people in office that talk out of both sides of there mouth. Get kick on of bars on worth days,
some having more under age drinking parties and I'm not talking about Chris I'm taliking about a board member, and people giving the finger to other people on the street. Are these the kind of people we want to give this type of power to . I don't!

Everyone got a card in the mail telling them about a meeting on Aug 17 about the Home Rule . They will tell you all the good things but noting about the bad.

Thanks. I live here and never got a card. Did the card say HR was good or just ask that people attend a meeting? Did it explain they want to raise taxes too?

I've been reading these boards. It's clear to me that several here are Worth politicians.

Hey PAL/STEVE?
If these comments about illegal activities are true and you have evidence to that fact then the police need to be called. But, if that is not the case one should be careful about spreading false rumors in the hopes of winning people over. Slander and Defamation of Character is the coward’s way to solve a problem. Plus I think there may be legal ramifications, that is of course if you are man/women enough to let us all know who you really are.

I dont even know you and I can see you are a gossip that spreads false rumors . I happen to know these board members and have NEVER
met a more decent group of people. This sight is for you to spin your little web of lies. Get a life and stop your evil lying lips unless you are going to reveal who you are. Folks I hope you don't listen to a scum like this and really get to know the WONDERFUL people that work continuosly to help this town .

I guess you should open your eyes to what is going on in town I know of only one decent person on the board and it to bad he is sitting there with the rest . I would say who I am but I have to live in this town . But if some how home rule is voted in my family and I are out of here no matter how much money we lose on are house. And if you knew who I was you would know that I'm not scum .

that is how some people will be on this site. Some will use facts to support their side and others will spread lies and rumors in hopes to win people over to their side. no matter who they may hurt along the way.
it's very sad they operate that way but when they have nothing else to support their claims about how bad Home Rule may be this is what they resort too.

I see that I made a mistake coming on here looking for information. Instead, I find people throwing insults and not offering information.
Jumping the gun will not help any. I am not making my mind up until the meeting.
