Why We Need to Do This:  

  • To hold elected officials accountable for their actions or inactions.  
  • To stop the expansion of future TIF districts until we know and understand what is happening with them and how it impacts all Merrill finances in the long run.  
  • To prevent current city council and administration from implementing the next city budget.  
  • To reevaluate the need of current proposed projects; Industrial Park on G, sidewalks to the VA building on 6th Street, Water & Sewer to the proposed Industrial Park on Highway G.  
  • To halt the planned borrowing of an additional $3 million for further speculative development by the City Finance Director and City Administrator in 2019 and 2020.  
  • To restore fiscal responsibility and accountability to the tax payers of Merrill.  
  • To make Merrill a place where people want to live and work, businesses want to invest and grow and visitorswant to return again and again!
