A Good Citizen

Hats of to the owner of Perfection Landscape and Design of Eastlake. A News-Herald article says, here, that the local chatter was that the landscape around the Willoughby-Eastlake libraries was looking bad this summer. According to the Willoughby-Eastlake Library system, reported in this article, the owner of the aforementioned landscape company stepped up to the plate and offered to volunteer his services for one year.

This is a true American. The owner stepped did something very generous despite a souring economy.

Earlier this year the Library system asked for a new levy around 1 mil and costing a homeowner around $30 per $100, 000 of valuation.

Please understand that I feel a laborer is worth his wages. However, the face of adversity in our community one noble citizen stepped up.

Now, the rest of those in Willoughby-Eastlake are saddled with two levies despite sagging wages.


  1. BRAVO!! Hope more folks get the community spirit and step up to the plate cause it's gett'n ugly out here!

    Hope the guy gets new customers from his generous offer!

  2. Anon I 2nd that notion!

    However, I am concerned that the passage of the levy will only show this sector of the economy that when times are tough they can just ask for more...and it will be forked over.

    Cuts are healthy. Cuts are what everyone else has had to do.

    Gov't, however, just asks for more!

  3. I have to question if library's are obsolete?
    The library gives out DVD's, hanging wall pictures ect.
