MOUNT VERNON — Morgan Township will be asking its citizens to approve the renewal of a 0.8-mill levy on the November ballot.
“This is one we’ve had on forever,” said Township Trustee Troy Rodeniser. “This is what we use to pay for our emergency services.”
Rodeniser said the emergency services are actually provided by the village of Utica and the money from the levy is used to pay Utica for providing the service.
The levy is a renewal and not a new tax and will not raise property taxes according to Rodeniser.
The Knox County Auditor’s Office said the cost of a 0.8-mill levy to the owner of a home valued at $100,000 would be about $28 a year.
