League of Women Voters supports Westlake infrastructure levy

The Westlake-North Olmsted Chapter of the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland voted on Oct. 22, 2019, to support Issue 71, the 0.375% levy request proposed by the City of Westlake as it appears on the Nov. 5, 2019, general election ballot.

In its review, based on the League’s positions on taxation, it was noted that the City Council has carefully evaluated the methods available to it for appropriating tax dollars and has made long-range plans for infrastructure improvements. In addition, the City Council has worked to ensure taxpayer understanding of this levy by providing detailed spending plans in a Special Edition of the Mayor’s Newsletter that has been mailed to residents and is readily available online.
