CENTERBURG — Through the magic of politics, lawns will soon begin sprouting multi-colored flora otherwise known as yard signs. For people in the Centerburg area and throughout the county, these will include signs posted by proponents of tax levy renewals for the Central Ohio Joint Fire District and the Knox County Park District. Last night, the Centerburg Village Council adopted resolutions in support of both initiatives.
The fire district is seeking a 5.5-mill replacement levy, without which its funding will expire at the end of the year. That operating levy amounts to about $175 per year for the owner of a $100,000 residence. The park district levy is also a renewal, at a rate of 0.35 mills, which is about $11 per year for a $100,000 home. Park District Chair Gloria Parsisson said that the county-wide levy would help to support upkeep of parks, trails and parking areas.
