Not supporting sinking millage

My husband and I have resided in Orion Township for 23 years. We supported school millages that built the new high school, middle and elementary schools. However, we cannot support this new millage on a “10-year sinking fund”. What a strange and negative name for a fund supposedly designated for maintenance. We also cannot buy […]

Sinking fund comments

Lake Orion has great schools. Given. Love them. There are things that need repair in the schools. Given. Fix them. Proposal A lowered the property tax years ago. Funding went to students not buildings. Given. However…School people/admin. knew that things would need repair. (Homeowners know this too). Who was paying attention to that necessity? Why […]

We believe in Mark and Penny

We have heard that some of the Trustees were upset that Mark Thurber was not in his office when Mark was with his mother who was very ill, and when Mark’s mother passed away. During this time, Mark was in touch with his Deputy Treasurer and his staff. The township has done very well since […]

Hold Your Nose – Close Your Eyes – And Jump In

At first glance you might think that I am suggesting you don a bathing suit, travel to your favorite beach or lake, and dive in. That would be more refreshing than what is coming up in the next couple of months, especially here in Lake Orion. Yes, it’s primary election time in August and then […]
