I wish to clarify the situation noted in the headline in today’s Chagrin Valley Times. While there are some technical matters remaining that need to be resolved regarding the Philomathean School lighting plan; none of these technical issues will in any way result in a school opening delay.

On behalf of the entire Village I would like to acknowledge and thank the Chagrin Falls Beautification Committee and the Dogwood Valley Garden Club for their many volunteer hours and financial contribution to making our Village the beautiful summer place it is. These groups both plant and maintain the flower beds throughout the downtown area. The Dogwood Valley Garden Club not only planted the hay racks on the bridge but contributed the funds to buy the hanging baskets displayed throughout the Downtown area. It is through the contributions of the many volunteers such as these that Chagrin Falls has been able to remain a vibrant village into the 21’st century.

Voter Information on Village Tax Levy Renewal
NOT A TAX INCREASE
Dear Chagrin Falls Resident:
On May 7th, Village voters will be asked to vote on a 5.5 mill General Fund renewal levy which would become effective January 1, 2020. This five year levy simply RENEWS a 5.5 mill tax issue which expires at the end of this year.
The proposed levy is a renewal of the current tax rate and WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR PROPERTY TAXES; the Village portion of your property tax bill will remain the same.
The levy will generate a total of $1 million per year, nearly 18% of the Village General Fund Budget. The following are examples of services funded by your property tax dollars:
Police and Fire Protection Ambulance Service
Street Maintenance Snow Removal
Rubbish Pick-up Parks
The Village receives 8.2% of the property taxes you pay each year. The remaining 91.8% is divided among the Chagrin Falls Schools, Cuyahoga County and Chagrin Falls Township. This Village General Fund operating levy has been constant at 5.5 voted mills for 31 years.
If you are interested in obtaining further information on this levy, please call Dave Bloom, Finance Director at the Village Hall (440) 247-5050.
Renewal is endorsed by:
Mayor: William Tomko
Former Mayors: Thomas Brick, Lydia Champlin, Ed Towns, B. Richard Bodwell
Nancy Rogoff, President
Erinn Grube, President Pro Tem
