My Taxes Will be Increased by What?
As many as seven levies could be voted on by Lucas County residents this November, as school districts, parks, museums and social services are placing their requests for funding on the ballot. The vote will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 during the national general election.
The largest request comes from Toledo Public Schools, which is seeking 4.9 mills of new money. The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, which now includes ADAS, also are asking for a new 1.0 mill levy. The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library is asking voters to renew their current 2.0 mills, and increase that tax by an additional 0.9 mills and The Children’s Services Board also is asking to renew their current 1.0 mill tax and increase it by 0.85 mills. The Imagination Station is seeking to renew their current tax of 0.17 mills.
The Toledo City Council approved on Tuesday, July 2 on a proposed 1.0 mill recreation levy. The Metroparks of the Toledo Area also decided to put an increase on the ballot, and will seek a 0.90 mill levy.
The voters will decide which of these levies will be passed.
