Voters approve Boardman police levy



Published: Tue, August 2, 2011 @ 9:49 p.m.

BOARDMAN — Voters approved a 3.85-mill, five-year additional police levy by a margin of 1,043 votes — more than double the margin of the November defeat of the same measure.

The Mahoning County Board of Elections reported tonight that 4,655 residents voted for the levy compared to 3,612 voting against it. In November, voters rejected the same measure with 8,473 against and 8,043 for, a difference of 430 votes.

The levy will generate about $3.8 million annually designated for the police department and cost the owner of a home valued at $100,000 about $117 annually. Nearly 2,000 ballots were cast before today, most from mailed-in absentee ballots, said Thomas McCabe, elections board director. Of those ballots, 68.3 percent were for the police levy.
