The Village of Archbold 3.3-mill property tax levy is due to expire during in tax year 2011.
Members of Archbold Village Council were notified of the information at their Monday night, Dec. 20, meeting, said Dennis Howell, Archbold village administrator.
Archbold voters first approved the levy in 1976. It has been renewed by voters every five years since.
While voters approved the property tax of 3.3 mills, under Ohio law, property taxes are adjusted for inflation.
Today, the 3.3-mill levy has an effective tax rate of .94 mills for agricultural and residential properties, said Brett Kolb, Fulton County auditor.
The levy generates $19,807 for the village, he said.
Howell said councilmen were notified of the levy renewal because Ohio election law has changed.
To place a tax request on the ballot, paperwork must be filed with local boards of elections 90 days prior to the election date. In the past, the deadline was 75 days.
