Village Income Tax Season

It’s the time of the year to prepare, and file income tax forms with Federal, State, and Local tax agencies. The Regional Income Tax Agency (RITA) will be administering the collection and processing of our local income tax for individual residents and businesses. This year a new online process seeks to streamline the task for most taxpayers. Instead of printing out forms and mailing or faxing, the available E-File in My Accounts makes the process quick and easy.  All Village residents 18 and older must file a return if they have taxable income, whether or not they owe any additional tax. Seniors who do not have any taxable income should file a one time Individual Declaration of Exemption. Forms are available at the Village Hall and online at www.ritaohio.com. Customer service representatives can be reached at 1-800-860-7482 to answer any questions.

Fall Leaf Pick-up

The Village of Sugarcreek Street Dept. will begin leaf pick-up on Monday Oct 24th and will continue to pick-up bagged leaves every Monday morning thru Nov. Residents are requested to put their leaves into trash bags NO larger than a 33 gal size. They should place them securely on the curb strip before 7:00 am, but please, no earlier than Sunday evening.

Residents need to know this is for leaves only, and all other yard waste should continue to be taken to the two locations provided. They are located next to the Village Hall on South Broadway and next to the Street Garage on Mill St. SW

We would like to remind all residents to not blow or push leaves or grass clippings into the street. The material will clog our storm sewer drains causing water to back-up on the roadway and into the yards of residents and businesses.

Thank You for your cooperation and enjoy the Fall season!

Issue 6 – Thank You Sugarcreek!

We, The Mayor, Village Council and the Administration wish to express our deepest gratitude to the residents of Sugarcreek for supporting Issue 6. This levy helps fund services vital to our community and the vote of confidence by YOU the residents means everything. We see this as an expressed trust to be protected and a guide to future decisions on behalf of our community.

Thank You Sugarcreek!

Vote YES on ISSUE 6

The Village of Sugarcreek invites you to VOTE YES for our General Fund Levy known as ISSUE 6. This levy is a five year levy that will need to be voted on again in 5 years and will replace the current levy from 1975 & 1980. The original levy was approved as a 1.7 mil levy for General Expenses in 1975 and in 1980 was raised to the current 2.0 mil value. The current levy has not kept pace with rising costs of expenses for line items related to Police Protection and Trash removal services provided by the Village of Sugarcreek.

Just last year an additional $150,000 from the General Fund was added to the Street Maintenance Budget to increase the Street Paving schedule for 2015. This year an additional $200,000 has been budgeted for Street Paving alone.

Currently the levy only has an Effective Rate of 0.8 mil. We cannot continue to maintain the level of services provided by the General Fund without a needed update to the current value of the levy.

Also due to significant reductions in revenue formerly provided by The State of Ohio Local Funds to Villages and Cities, the budget is further being strained to keep up with the increased costs of maintaining our valuable buildings and assets. The Mayor and Council have stretched every dollar they can but the time has come to ask our residents to renew their support of this important fund.

We truly appreciate the support of all our residents and we are responsibly seeking to provide the best possible solutions for maintaining the services we all value.

We need your help and your continued support please Vote Yes!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact anyone at Village Hall or any Council Member.
