Village, school renewal issues on ballot


By Drew Stambaugh - dstambaugh@aimmediamidwest.com



Three Swanton area issues will be decided during the May 7 election.

The Village of Swanton will have two renewal levies on the ballot. Voters will decide on a five-year, 2-mill renewal levy for fire and a 5-year, 0.5-mill renewal for permanent improvements for village parks.

There is also a school issue on the ballot in the Swanton Local School District. District residents will vote on the renewal of a 0.75 percent income tax.

The income tax was first approved in 2004 at a rate of 1.25% and was renewed in 2008 at the lower rate of 0.75%.

Money raised by the tax makes up 13% of the school district’s revenue.

In Fulton Township, voters will decide on a five-year, 0.75-mill levy for general construction, reconstruction, resurfacing, and repair of roads.

Amboy Township voters will see a five-year, 1-mill renewal levy on the ballot for fire and EMS.

There will be no candidates on the ballot in Fulton County this May.
