Bargain time, collective or not?

Whether a Democrat or Republican is elected governor next week, it does seem as if the state’s Local Government Fund shares will shrink for many towns and everybody else all over Ohio.

So might any Ohio Municipal League mayors or council members, including those in Lake County, ponder consulting local state legislators about all this?

You know, might anybody suggest amending state laws to hold down any local costs in, say, town hall collective bargaining between council, the mayor and police and fire departments, unionized or not, in agreements already reached or potentially pending?

Could that same conversation be proposed next by the Ohio Township Association members?
