Greene County’s leaders are pushing for the bridge levy to be renewed for the November 2nd election
GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – According to Greene County engineer Stephanie Goff, voters have continued to vote for a bridge renewal levy in Greene County since the 1960s.
“This enables us to carry out repairs and replacements of our bridges on all of our bridges. These are bridges not only on our county roads, but also on our community roads and on our parishes that are thoroughfares, ”said Goff.
The $ 0.25 million renewal levy would cost taxpayers a little less than $ 1 million each year. Goff says if a homeowner’s home is $ 100,000 or more, he’ll be paying $ 8.75 a year. While Goff and other circle leaders acknowledge that the circle bridges are in overall good condition, the goal is to maintain their condition.
“The bridges are generally in good shape, but we have a number of bridges that will age around the same time. We have to be one step ahead, ”said Goff.
If the levy is renewed, it would last five years and expire in 2025. The early voting for the November 2nd elections is underway. The electoral committee was closed for Columbus Day but will reopen on October 12th.
