Choose Your Poison

Regardless of the outcome, Sylvan Township seems to have reached two major turning points in the last six months. Payments on the $13.2 million debt are sure to continue for years no matter what, but at least a settling of the terms of payment is finally on the horizon--whether the township voters choose their own fate or a judge does so for them.

What's more, the civic engagement sparked by the millage debate isn't likely to abate once millage terms are set. Not if the Free Sylvan folks have anything to say about it.

"We're definitely going to have better governance in this township," says Zieske. "Even if some of the board members stay there after the next election, they have people watching them. There is almost zero chance that something like this is going to happen again.

"We might take a hit from this, but we're not going to keep getting slammed."    (end of article)
