Voters in Henry County are asked to approve a property tax levy renewal for the county senior center during the Tuesday, Nov. 6 General Election.
Kevin Garringer, Henry County treasurer, said the levy, which was first approved in 2008, was eighttenths (.8) of a mill.
However, because under Ohio law no levy is allowed to raise additional money as property values rise through appreciation, the millage has been decreased.
Today, the levy is charged against property owners at an effective rate of .641525 mills.
The levy raises $398,704 for the senior center.
Sandy Blackwood, senior center director, said the levy goes for general operations.
She said each year, the senior center delivers 30,000 meals to 260 homebound Henry County seniors, and provides 800 trips for seniors to doctor appointments, visits to the store, etc.
Voters in a portion of Freedom Township will be asked to approve a new 3.9-mill, five-year levy for Napoleon City Schools.
