ELYRIA WATER QUALITY UPDATE – TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 AT 10:40AM

Posted on September 27, 2016 at 11:29 am

NOTICE FROM MAYOR’S OFFICE:

ELYRIA WATER QUALITY UPDATE – TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 AT 10:40AM

There is some sediment in Elyria’s water supply this morning, but the Ohio EPA has deemed it safe to drink and use for other purposes. The water plant on Lake Erie did not fail – but, a surge valve in the City’s water distribution system that relieves pressure in the system opened properly and then did not close properly.  The end result was that it stirred up some sediment in a finished water tank.  Data has been provided to the EPA and it has been determined that the water does meet water quality standards.  The City is flushing the water distribution system to clear out the sediment.  If you see sediment or discolored water you are advised to let your cold water run for several minutes until the water becomes clear.

On Saturday, December 3 we will kick-off festivities in and around Ely Square and at Finwood Estate.  Both displays, and the array of free, family-friendly activities that accompany them, make the hope and joy of the season accessible to everyone. Your donation will help us provide gift bags for children, refreshments, holiday crafts, and a Petting Zoo complete with reindeer. As Mayor I will fund a free book give-away and our civic organizations and churches will provide a North Pole experience; ice sculpting; a coat, scarf, mitten and hat give-away; and more.  And thanks to past contributions, the City will gain be able to provide a magnificent holiday lights display at both locations.

Elyria truly is a caring community and you can be a beacon of hope and goodwill by becoming a Holiday Lights donor. A donation in any amount is appreciated and is tax-deductible.  Checks should be made out to the City of Elyria – notation line: Holiday Lights Program – and mailed to: Mayor Holly Brinda – Elyria City Hall – 131 Court Street, Suite 301 – Elyria, Ohio  44035.

PLEASE HELP PROTECT ELYRIA FROM FURTHER FINANCIAL LOSSES

Posted on June 15, 2017 at 2:46 pm

Dear Elyria and Area Constituents,

Out of concern for the City of Elyria’s ability to deliver quality services, I am asking for your assistance in urging members of the Ohio Senate, including Senator Gayle Manning, to REMOVE three changes in the current Senate budget that will have a negative impact on the financial health of local communities – including the City of Elyria.  The Senate will make one last round of changes before it passes the bill next week and it is important that we mobilize and communicate our concerns this weekA full explanation of the changes and the negative impacts follow, so please call Senator Manning office to express your concerns at (614) 644-7613.

Here are the issues that will have a negative impact on Elyria’s budget and ability to deliver services…

Even with the Local Government Fund (LGF) not being cut this time around, Ohio’s local communities could still lose revenue under the current budget proposal. Below are the three specific changes in the proposed budget that will result in revenue losses for Ohio’s cities.

1. Local Government Fund (LGF): The percentage hasn’t been cut again, but funding for cities will still be about $90m less.

  • While we appreciate that the legislature has not made further reductions to the 1.66 percentage rate of the Local Government Fund (LGF), cities will still see less LGF because of a lower overall state budget.
  • For local communities, this means that the total LGF disbursement will be about $90 million less in this budget than it was in the 2016-17 budget.
  • The Senate version also redirects $35 million meant for cities to opioid treatment funding, which further erodes this revenue sharing program. The budget proposal also diverts an additional $24 million out of LGF intended for cities and villages to townships.

2. Throwback: This change will cost cities and could create complications for businesses.

  • By eliminating the Throwback rule – which allows cities to tax the sale of a good that is shipped to another location where a sales tax is not applied – many Ohio cities will see an immediate financial loss.
  • Losing the application of this tax could also create complications for businesses in tracking how to apply a sales tax. It will cost some cites as much as a full-time police officer. Akron estimates that it will cost nearly $2 million in local revenue. For others like Grove City, it will cost nearly $850. This provision should not be eliminated, but if it is it should be done over several years to give communities time to adjust.

3. Centralized Collection: Giving businesses the option to file one return should not come at the expense of Ohio’s cities and local communities.

  • The modified centralized collection proposal gives businesses the option to file one return through the state’s Ohio Business Gateway. However, the state will be collecting the revenue and distributing it back to the cities monthly.
  • The state will also charge cities a 1% fee for administering this new program. For cities that don’t use a third-party administrator, which is most of the larger cities, this will be a net revenue reduction.

SUMMARY

Ohio’s local communities are on the front lines of Ohio’s greatest challenges and biggest opportunities.  After years of funding reductions, additional revenue losses to local communities – no matter how big or small – will have an impact.

  • Ohio’s local leaders are asking state policy makers to avoid implementing all of these changes all at once. The revenue impacts and the timing of these revenue losses for cities will have a negative impact on the financial health of local communities.

Thank You, Generous Donors!

A sincere THANK YOU! to all who helped make the City of Elyria the Choice for family fun in 2016!
