vote NO!!! this money is going in general fund & will be used for thingw other then cemetery. the city is talking about a 1/4% increase to income tax, adding add'l $5 to $10 to license plates. There needs to be cuts made in the city(not police & fire) cuts to pay for Dept. heads wages and disband the health dept!!!!
plus the school wants more money; soon the library will want more money to pay for the high rent on the redone Piqua money pit Hotel

"No new taxes" You don't know what you are talking about. This money goes directly to the cemetary and is used to support the cemetary only. Without the renewal, the cemetary will not have enough money to operate. The cemetary is a joint cemetary with Washington Township and Piqua. "No new taxes" needs to get his facts straight before shooting off his mouth.

The tax renewal for the school does not increase any money that the school receives.

Obviously, you have not been through the hotel, but please advise what is going to fall apart in that building in the next five years.

Finally, EDUCATE yourself about the issues before you comment on them.

Why don't they just charge people more to get buried?

As a taxpayer, I don't believe I should have to pay for other people to get buried in Forest Hills Cemetary.

A graveyard is like a can't just charge dead people more. If that were the case, it would be a private graveyard and it would be locked up unless you bought a membership or something.

A private graveyard is fine if you don't mind having bodies of poor people piling up.

The school tax is a renewal. Which means the tax is not going up, it is staying the same. Piqua is a sorry ass town that doesn't think kids need good educations. The current school tax is way below other schools in the area, but people don't even want to renew.

Springhill in Cincinnati charges about $10,000 for its graves. I'm sure if we want to bury only the wealthy, we can do that in Piqua.

then everyone else can get cremated. It's better for the environment and less costly.
