Attention Village Residents
Recently, there have been rumors and vicious attack regarding the Village of Breedsville.
Therefore, the Village council feels compel to address those rumors and put to rest the false information that is being circulated.
First, it is the position of the village council that any resident of the village can file a valid petition to dissolve the village.
With that being the issue, one has to wonder what the real motive is for the particular resident who is disseminating those rumors.
At one time, that resident was a village council member, and was suspended May, 2016 for unprofessional conduct.
Additionally, it is very easy for the resident to state in a petition that the village does not have finances to maintain the village.
Further, the resident states that the village cannot make road repairs. These assertions are flatly false and malicious.
As many of you know, the village fixed the bridge on CR-215 in 2017 and we repaved East Main Street in 2019.
Pine Street is scheduled in 2021 or 2022 based on approval of a state grant. Again, there is no basis whatsoever,
for the residents claim that the village cannot make road repairs.
As for the villages finances, the following comes from directly from the annual audit filed with the State of Michigan.
It is easy to access; and anyone can go on the states website to view it themselves.
Current Assets: $356,771
Total Assets: $1,371,866
Non-Current Assets: $1,015,095
Fund BALANCES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
General Fund: $71,506
Major Street Fund: $76,481
Local Street Fund: $26,874
FY 2018/2019 Data
Fund Balance Ending $353,005
Includes total village funds
On March 31, 2019, the Village had fund balances of $353,005. The statement on the petition is unfounded and does not represent
the true financial state of the village. The village has grant money slated for 2021 or 2022 and we apply for grants to save the village residents
to maintain taxes low to cover government costs for maintenance and repairs. Again, please do not give any credence to the rumors that you
may have heard. We are working hard on your behalf.
