Liberty voters to see a 1.25-mill road levy in November

Published: Mon, June 25, 2012 @ 8:42 p.m.

LIBERTY — Township trustees will place a 1.25-mill road levy on the November ballot.

The board decided today on a five-year levy that would bring in $268,000 per year, and cost a person with a $100,000 home $38.28 annually, said fiscal officer John Fusco.

The proposal will appear alongside a .45-mill levy trustees approved in April for the fall ballot. That levy is designed to offset the cost of transferring the township’s 911 dispatch center to the Trumbull County 911 Center in Howland, township officials said.

If the township would have kept the dispatching operation in Liberty, residents would have had to pass a 1.2-mill levy instead of a .45-mill levy, Trustee Jason Rubin said. The .45 mill levy is also for five years and will bring in $96,000 per year. It will cost someone with a $100,000 home and additional $13.78 annually.

Any tax increase is going straight to payroll.

In fact, why don't you designate money from the General Fund towards road repair, etc., and put a Payroll Levy on the ballot?

Why do we need to pay Ungaro $120,000+ anyway? Remember how they took money from the police fund to pay administrator salaries? This is why they're asking you for more money. Weasels.

I hope the money actually will go to the road department.
