Committee recommends against placing Children Services levy


The Lucas County Citizens Levy Review Committee today recommended against placing a Lucas County Children Services tax proposal on the Nov. 4. ballot.

Children Services‘‍ officials want to replace a five-year 1.4-mill levy that is set to expire in 2016 with a seven-year, 1.9-mill issue. It would collect about $13.3 million a year.

The request will go before the Lucas County commissioners, who can accept or overrule the committee‘‍s recommendation.
