Looking at this list I didn't see a donation to Peru Fire Department and I think donations to groups like PADS are very light compared to looking at Townships like South Ottawa. I have been unable to locate a written policy about how donations are considered and denied. For example, Liberty Fire Co asked for a donation which should be decided by the Trustees and Supervisor Hocking decided on his on accord it was not a worthy organization to give to. He is not the final say, the Trustees should have been allowed to vote and this was on the Agenda and was a OMA violation.
I urge you to reach out to your Trustees to cut overspending and push them to move for a Tax decrease. Any person that understands government would know this operation overspends more than any taxing body I have seen. Why are we still tolerating overspending?
