The SCPR has learned that in following politics that politicians will fight over just about anything. And, if there is any doubt about that, Hartville is proving the foregoing statement in spades.
Hartville's administration (Mayor Ed Tucker and his allies on Hartville Council and the Bureau of Public Affairs - "Tuckers") is in a political life and death struggle with is in a gigantic political fight over its sewage with former mayor Bev Green, former clerk-treasurer Anna Erb and former member of council Bruce Klipec, among others.
According to Kilpec, Mayor Tucker is headed down a path nearly doubling residential sewer rates to $55 per month.
And the Tucker move has the Green-led forces ("Greens") hopping mad.
So the battle is on in Hartville.

Because the fight has a long history and is wrapped up in the complications of prior elections and various sewer expansions (realized and planned), the SCPR will be moving through the political mishmash in a serial fashion.
