For a vote??? should have been proposed in proposition 1, 2, or 3. Not 'all-in-one'!

and trying to CRAM it down the throats of voters is just another sign. VOTE NO, NO, NO!!!!!!! Better options are available, find them! This is why we voted you in!!! Not just for Mr. Donah's extensive study that doesn't include OPTIONS!!!!! Poor Leadership right there!!!!

I agree that the current proposal is way, way too expensive. A great building could be constructed for half the cost.

Yes to a new building. NO to the current design & cost!

And Yes, TL needs new facilities for EMS!!! But, not at this cost. It can be done at a more affordable cost. VOTE NO!!!!!

Lastly, for now (lol), here's a thought for the board: If this vote fails (which should), consult locally and gather quotes from the Colton area and reap the benefit from our Amish neighbors. The Mennonite community can build at rates 1/5 the cost and with SUPERIOR Quality!!!!!!!

The issue of rising taxes if this does pass: BEWARE TL'ers; with the ACR not going anywhere (except to court after court) coupled with the NEW OPWDD re-structuring plan, most of Sunmount (and YES that means most of your staff too) will be GONE!!!! Now what is that going to do to the tax base? the assessments? the equalization rates? Now, that pay back figure multiplies enormously, so Beware TL, vote cautiously and intelligently folks!!!!!

Rick Donah, being the fire commissioner, should not have even been on such a committee to examine the issue.....Conflict of interest????? hello!!! Further he claimed 'respectfully disagree', that was not respectful at all, mr. Donah. Dan McClelland put out options for the voters to consider. Just because he didn't jump onboard with one consulting firms' recommendation doesn't make him a bad guy! Actually, quite contrare Mr. Donah, he is actually suggesting options!!! The voters need OPTIONS, not being sold everything in one hand-basket.

Vote NO this time around, there are better options available. Mr. Donah in his guest commentary is way off base with some of his arguments in response to Mr. McClelland's editorial.

I would rather say yes to paying this than paying more in school taxes!
