Eight levy issues on May ballots
LISBON - Columbiana County Auditor Nancy Milliken reminds county residents that there will be eight levy issues on the May 6 ballot for consideration by local voters. The issues that will have the largest impact on the county are renewals that will not result in higher tax bills for the local taxpayers and will continue to have the rollbacks reimbursed by the state instead of passing the cost on to the local taxpayers. Those issues include:
Beaver Local School District's 5.3 mill emergency levy renewal
East Liverpool City's 8 mill fire protection levy renewal
Madison Township's 2 mill road levy renewal
Madison Township's 0.5 mill road levy renewal
United Local School District's 3 mill permanent improvement levy renewal
Wellsville Local School District's 2 mill permanent improvement levy renewal
The two additional levies that may be of interest to some local residents and should have questions directed to their home counties include: Minerva Village 1 mill additional parks (Stark County); and West Branch Local School District 0.75 mill income tax (Mahoning County).
