No Karl. Here is the translation:
People who earn profits off of a locality that they merely hold a profit driven interest in should be expected to support the local schools.
What a crazy concept, huh?

ODOT--who maintains all interstates and state highways. So shut up? You've just stated a really awful response here.
Not necessarily. ODOT usually isn't plowing interstates within the corporate limits of municipalities.

It most certainly is on the interstates and state highways.

City or county has jurisdiction elsewhere. And if I have to work in another city, pay their taxes, and they do a shitty job of plowing those road in that city, why can I not vote? Obviously, they aren't concerned with providing service, are they, to their customers?

You're a complete moron. I travel 270 every day:

The Ohio Department of Transportation currently has access to 1,536 snow plows to help maintain good road conditions during winter months, and has approximately 2,500 employees available each season for snow and ice removal. In addition to trucks, the department also has 400,000 tons of salt stored at 222 locations statewide. While ODOT spends an average of $24 million per year for winter operations, though most years can use anywhere from 300,000 to 550,000 tons of salt per year.[51]

Not at all. Profits are good. But people who are going to extract profits from a place like Ottawa County had better expect that they will be obligated to support the local school systems if they choose to extract profits from owning real property in Ottawa County.

If they want to have a voice in how much they are taxed on that property, they are free to move to Ottawa County, and register to vote, or throw their name in the hat for elective office.

My brother or my Aunt can hook them up with a place if they need one. Got some cottages right across the bay from Cedar Point. It's nice there this time of year.

Bullsh!t. All 55 miles of 270 lie within municipalities. And ODOT plows every inch.

Well that wasn't what I asked Karl. Karl lives in Medina County and works in downtown Akron. He drive the Innerbelt in Akron every day. Akron's Highway Division maintains that road.

He knows what I am talking about.

If you don't like working or driving somewhere, stay home. Don't go there.

By building/buying the property, they invested INTO Ottawa County

What makes you think you should be able to vote in the county I grew up in merely upon the basis of property ownership but not residence?
BTW.
There really isn't much vacation property in Sandusky County on the Lakefront.
A slight geographical error on your part.
woof
Why makes you think I shouldn't, if I own property there and maintain a presence there?

I grew up in Lucas County and spent quite a bit of my childhood on western Lake Erie. Know damn well what's up in that area. There is some damn fine property up along the Pickerel Wildlife area and up along Muddy Creek Bay. Know it's not Cedar Point. I hit the state parks and reserves when I can as a hiker/camper. Meow.

Welcome to the 21st century. Not everyone wishes to live where they work. It is possible also to make a living remotely, and off of real estate as well.

You haven't addressed that.

As much as I adore Ohio's north shore, it's impractical for me to live there. Why can't you think out of the box and realize that maybe, just maybe if I invested into those properties, that I am contributing to the economy, maintaining a presence while I do what I want to do here, and that if I am obligated to contributing to the school district--that there ought to be a balancing factor to the taxes, that it could be a good thing to allow me to vote, even absentee, on issues that affect me as a property owner there?

Are you THAT afraid that I wouldn't vote for them?

A. You apparently don't know that Sandusky County does not have any land abutting Lake Erie.

B. If you wish to have a vote, you can establish residence, and do so.

Yes Karl, they invested. And one of the expenses that must be paid before that investment makes a profit is property taxes, which support the schools.

Don't like the funding system? Read about DeRolph I, II, III, and IV.

Most certainly people can live and work from home.

Most certainly people make money off of real estate in locations they don't reside in.

The people who actually reside in a community 365 days a year would seem to me to have a much more vested interest in their community than an absentee property owner, don't you think?
