Issues to dot Nov. ballots in Fulton County

By Drew Stambaugh -

Issues will dot ballots throughout Fulton County in November, with most being renewals or replacements.

There was one countywide issue that met the filing deadline to appear on the ballot. The ADAMhs Board is requesting a renewal of a five-year 0.7-mill levy for current expenses.

Fire and EMS levies will be on ballots in a pair of local townships. In Fulton Township, voters will decide on an additional five-year, 1-mill levy.

Swancreek Township will vote on a renewal and increase of a levy for fire expenses. It would renew a 1.5-mill levy while adding 0.5-mill, for a total of 2-mills.

Evergreen voters will be asked to approve a renewal and decrease of the district’s income tax. It would be for five years and the new rate would be 0.5 percent.

Pike-Delta-York voters will be asked to approve a a five-year, 6.65-mill substitute levy. It would mean no change for current residents but would allow future development to be taxed.

There will be two issues on the ballot just for Village of Delta residents. One is a five-year, 0.5-mill renewal for recreation, the other a referendum of a proposed ordinance establishing the municipal electric utility department.
