Kearny needs Home Rule Option to be passed by voters

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Home Rule is extremely important to our town in the upcoming election. Kearny wants to obtain all possible grants, monetary donations and donations of equipment to help us function efficiently. Without passing the Home Rule options, none of this will be possible. The Town would not be able to spend one penny over its adopted budget that is based on our population with no tax increase.

The swimming pool would not be in operation, because of the cost of chemicals, which came through donations. The 4th of July celebration, with fireworks that lasted longer, were due to donations from several companies. Grants and donations make these things happen.

The last ambulance and fire truck we received came through grants, and, several police cars were donated by other towns, along with a utility truck. Grants and donations have helped this town tremendously, and, without them, many services would not function the way they do.

In other words, Home Rule must pass to keep our community what it is now./s/ Sheila Stephenson
