Just what are the benefits to residents of Coal Valley when the village board makes its decisions?

I have lived in Coal Valley for 29 years. Each year I have watched many new homes being built. It seems logical that these new homeowners are providing a wider tax base which means additional revenue for our village.

Yet, my taxes have been going up for the last several years, and I don't know what they are being used for. I think it's time for new blood in our village government. I'm voting for write-in candidate, Emil Maslanka for president/mayor.

Nancy Ritter,
Coal Valley
