We have a very important election coming up in Genesee Township on May 16. Here are some very interesting facts to consider:
Miller and Luce were not elected. They were appointed by previous Supervisors.
The Citizens have been overcharged in the past for Solid Waste services, and Luce and Miller have been repeatedly questioned about this overcharge. At an open meeting, Miller and Luce voted to continue to run Solid Waste for 2017 as they did in 2016. Last year, the township charged taxpayers $23,732.12 just for labor, plus $16,718.00 just for the use of the township pickup. (the Township could buy a new truck every two years at that rate on just what they make on Solid Waste, and in the end, Solid Waste has nothing to show for that outrageous amount of money). With the tipping fees at Gold, which is roughly $8,000.00 per year, the total from Miller and Luce runs around $48,000.00 for Solid Waste pickup.
An accounting furnished by taxpayers to the Township, shows that all garbage could be collected in accordance with our Solid Waste Ordinance for around $21,000.00 per year, still leaving around $5,000.00 surplus in ending balance. That means that you are being overcharged by $27,000.00 each year!
It is time we make a change and elect supervisors who will be responsible with our money. What happened in the past can't be changed, but you can change what happens in the future. Use your vote to tell Luce and Miller they've got to go.
