This Wednesday the big Johnson City dissolution public hearing is scheduled to happen. It's a topic that brings out strong emotions. A group of residents spear-headed the move to have voters decide whether the village should be dissolved into the Town of Union, because they say taxes need to be contained more than what they have been. However, dissolution opponents aren't convinced about savings and say it's better to pay a little more but still have the same level of service, especially in the fire and police departments. Carol Liscowski is concerned people will vote for dissolution just to limit the fire department, especially after the board approved that lucrative 5 year contract. Carol Liscowski says, That can't be the only reason to vote for dissolution. There has to be...my suggestion is to not vote for dissolution if that's the only reason why you're voting because of what its going to do to the fire department.

The dissolution public hearing with the village board will be Wednesday, September 2nd at 7 pm at the Johnson City High School on Reynolds Road.
