Huron County/Norwalk school and police levies

A couple of levy issues to think about in Norwalk…

The Norwalk City School District is offering up a 4.85 mills renewal levy that would generate $1.5 million per year for 10 years that would fund science, technology, engineering and math opportunities.

Also, the Norwalk Police have a tax levy replacement on the ballot Tuesday. Police Chief Mike Conney says the members of the police department strive daily to fulfill the agency’s mission: enforcing the law and providing quality service to Norwalk citizens.

Currently, Norwalk property owners of a home valued at $100,000 pay $5.24 annually; the proposed levy will increase that amount of tax to $31.50 per year.
