County Ballot Initiative

Shall the County Governing Body be authorized to continue to make a permanent special levy of 12.50 mills (approximately the sum of $120,000) per year to fund continued operation of senior citizen services including congregate meals, home delivered meals, operation of services for the public transportation program and other activities?

These funds (totaling approximately $120,000) will be used for both operating and capital needs. Passage of this proposal (continuing the increase of approximately 12.5 mills over the original mill levies) will continue the currently increased taxes of approximately $16.88 per year ($1.41 per month) on a home with a market value of $100,000 and approximately $33.75 per year ($2.82 per month) on a home with a market value of $200,000.
