Honigford wants city’stimeline for budget cuts
By NANCY SPENCERHerald Editornspencer@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS — City council was heldto task again Monday evening when TimHonigford returned to the microphone withmore budgetary questions during the meet-ing.“I would like to know the time frameof these cuts you’ve been talking about,”Honigford said.Safety Service Director Greg Berquistasked to address the question.“There will absolutely be cuts in 2014and we have a tentative plan to institutesome cuts this year,” Berquist said. “Wehave cut our budget for the last five years.We have been prolonging laying people off by using attrition to trim departments. Weare down one in maintenance, two policeofficers and one position at the wastewatertreatment plant. Those jobs have not beenfilled.”Honigford continued:“It’s been several weeks. What cuts areyou leaning toward?” Honigford asked. “If you don’t make cuts before the citizens haveto vote on this tax, it’s going down by 80percent. We need to see some cost-savingsand more efficiency. Many of us have hadto tighten our belts again and again. If the tax goes down, it will be because youdidn’t help yourself. We’ve got to see somechanges. It’s all ‘status quo’.”Honigford also questioned the city tak-ing a 20-year loan for the Gressel DriveWater Loop Project: “We’re already look-ing at tens of millions of dollars of debtand we’re still taking out loans. I think itwas reported it was a 2.3-percent 20-yearloan. We’re borrowing $60,000 for 20 years.That’s ridiculous. How do you feel aboutthis mayor?”Before Mayor Michael Gallmeier couldrespond, Berquist fielded the question.“That project was initiated as a resultof a fire at Green Fiber on Gressel Drive,”he said. “We almost didn’t control that firebecause of poor water pressure. We avoidedwhat could have been a disastrous fire hadit not been for mutual aid.”Honigford reworded his question.“How about loans in general? We are fac-ing fiscal emergency. Why is it business asusual?” he asked.Gallmeier did respond this time.“How do you fix things without loans?”he asked Honigford. “We have to fix thingswhen they need fixed.”

Edgar Begg into the Allen CountyAgricultural Hall of Fame during Friday’smonthly Wake Rattle and Roll breakfast pro-gram at the Allen County Fairgrounds.These two inductees are the very firstto receive this distinction and according tothe Chamber’s agri-business committee chairBeth Seibert, “The decision was obvious. Ourgoal with the Hall of Fame is to annually rec-ognize local agriculturalists that have beeninstrumental to the success and excellence of agriculture in Allen County, either as a farmeror in an agriculturally related field. Both of our charter inductees truly reflect the award’spurpose of honoring and giving public recog-nition to those who have brought distinctionto themselves, have made outstanding contri-butions to their professions and whose com-munity involvement has served as a stimulusto others.”Leimbach’s service to Allen County agri-culture is largely defined by his 31 years of service (1951-1982) as the OSU ExtensionAg Agent. Beyond that, his community ser-vice record is quite extensive and remarkable.Those that have worked with him the closestfound his dedi-cation to build-ing relationshipsand cooperativeefforts funda-mental to his suc-cess.Born andraised inErie County,Leimbach notonly made acareer in AllenCounty, but hemade it his home.Despite somehealth limita-tions, he and hiswife Doris are expected to be present for theaward ceremony Friday morning. Leimbach’snomination came from the Chamber’s AgCommittee.Begg was nominated by the Allen Soiland Water Conservation District as its firstBoard chair, critical to the formation of thelocal District and bringing the resources of the USDA Soil Conservation Service to AllenCounty in 1945. His nomination was co-sponsored by his grandson, Jay Begg. As alifetime Monroe Township farmer, Edgar iscited with count-less examples of innovation, pro-gressive farmingand excellence inproduction agri-culture. His com-munity leadershiprecord is also verydistinguished.Begg is beinghonored posthu-mously (1906-2003), but fam-ily members willbe accepting theaward during thepresentation.The Chamber invites the public to come outand participate in honoring these two individu-als at the fairgrounds Friday.
