I would like Bowling Green city officials to look at cutting costs instead of raising taxes, as the .08 percent tax increase is proposed on the November ballot.
All Bowling Green property owners pay taxes to the county for sheriff services. I propose that the sheriff provide the same police protection for Bowling Green that they provide for other taxpayers in the county.
Bowling Green can reduce the size of its police department accordingly. With the Ohio State Highway Patrol post just outside the city, the sheriff and Bowling Green State University police inside the city, Bowling Green has the highest number of police officers per citizen.
Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn is humble and intelligent and can provide better leadership and command over the city police saving additional money. If this tax increase passes or fails, city officials should consider reducing its police and administration. We should receive the sheriff services that we are already paying for.
