0.4-mill tax levy sought to fund rec programs


The Sylvania Area Joint Recreation District will ask voters in November to approve a new 0.4-mill levy to fund operations.

The millage, if adopted, would run indefinitely and generate $578,875 a year. The board approved the request at its meeting Tuesday and filed it with the Lucas County Board of Elections on Wednesday.

The request will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot, along with five levy requests that are expected from Lucas County agencies, although so far, the only countywide request to be filed with the elections board is from the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. That facility is seeking a 2.9-mill operating levy to replace its 2-mill tax that expires at the end of the year.
