CELEBRATE - You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who fi le by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the fl ies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~ Erma Bombeck. On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Happy birthday, America, July 4.

Conneaut Lake Borough Council held their June work session with Council members Bill Eldridge, Mayor Timothy Kaider, Penny Monahan and Dick Holabaugh in attendance. Councilmen Billy Paris, Mike Krepps, John Chuey and Dwight Stallard were absent. There was one citizen present. An agenda was provided.

Chairman Dick Holabaugh began a discussion regarding the outflow of Conneaut Lake and the recent “rain event” at the end of May. Over 5 inches of rain fell in the Conneaut Lake area, causing flooding of culverts, pipes, basements and sewer lines. The outflow of Conneaut Lake was actually flowing backward into the lake and the local sewer treatment plant was flooded.

The outflow area is in need of cleaning, but the Borough does not have any jurisdiction to commence clean up work.

The PA Game Commission was contacted by Streets Manager Jim Donnachie since the June public Council meeting, and permission was given to clean out the outflow area. A track hoe will be needed to work in this area.

Councilman Bill Eldridge asked some questions and would like the cleaning process to begin as soon as possible.

SUMMER READING - Linesville Public Library had a special guest Wed. June 17 - local hero Mr. Dave who is the area’s UPS Driver. Ms. Telce asked Mr. Dave lots of questions and the group learned many different things about being a UPS driver. The group thought it was funny that Mr. Dave had a brown hat, brown shirt, brown shorts and brown socks! Library readers learned that UPS drivers also deliver their packages through all kinds of weather just like mailmen and that UPS was started by two young men delivering packages/messages on bicycles. UPS delivers 15 million packages each day all over the world.

 
Conneaut holds line on budget: no tax increase Print E-mail

There will be no real estate tax increase in the Conneaut School District this upcoming school year that begins July 1, but the school district projects using fund balance to make up the difference between expenses and income.

Expenses are pegged at $36,574,791, while income is projected at $35,345,323.

Expenses over the current year are shown at increasing by $1,187,396, while income is shown as increasing by only $104,447.

It is unknown what, if any, increase may be coming from the state, so that figure is flatlined -listed the same as what it expected in the current year. Any increase in state support will then help lower the difference between expenses and income.

The school district is projecting an increase in this year’s fund balance of $124,357, rather than a decrease with the projected budget listing the spending of $1,229,468 in fund balance. Fund balance was projected to be spent some in the current year’s budget, but the district was able to increase, not decrease, the fund balance as just noted.
