Janesville City Council referendums get a 'no'
JANESVILLE--A simple statement by Janesville City Council Member Deb Dongarra-Adams effectively ended a lengthy discussion Monday.
“I just want to say, I can’t afford to pay any more taxes,” she said. “I will not be voting in favor of these.”
Dongarra-Adams referred to two referendum questions that members Jim Farrell and Sam Liebert proposed adding to the April ballot.
One question would have allowed the council to use up to $1 million each of the next three years to maintain public safety services. The second would have allowed the council up to $1.5 million for each of three years to fix streets.
Voting against the referendum were Dongarra-Adams, Matt Kealy, DuWayne Severson and President Kathy Voskuil. Voting in favor were Liebert, Farrell and Russ Steeber.
