Beaver Township trustees to pursue renewal of levy
NORTH LIMA -- Beaver Township trustees are asking residents to renew a 1.9 mill tax levy in November.
Township officials, at the trustees regular monthly meeting Tuesday, explained that the renewal would go into effect in 2006 but money from the tax levy wouldn't be collected until 2007. The $263,172 generated from the renewal is to be used for current expenses. The five-year tax levy was established in 2001 and is to expire at the end of this year.
In other business, trustees hired Evangeline McDade as a cleaning person for the township parks. Her wage was set at $7 an hour.
The trustees also authorized the township's road department to make tar and chip repairs to various roads throughout the community and to rent a roller from Southeast Equipment to complete the project. The cost of renting the equipment is $700 a week and officials said they expect the project to be completed within a few days.
Also, the trustees announced their next monthly meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 at Woodworth Park.
