ELECTION 2010 – Roads, bridges renewals; liquor sales before voters

Roads, bridges renewals; liquor sales before voters

Two townships are asking voters to renew levies for roads and bridges on May 4, and businesses in four Medina County precincts seek the right to sell beer, wine or liquor.

In Harrisville Township, the 1- mill, five-year road and bridge levy expires at the end of this year. It brings in $40,121 annually and costs residents $14.22 per $100,000 of appraised property valuation, according to the Medina County

Auditor’s Office.
Spencer Township’s expiring road and bridge levy also is for five years, but is 2 mills. It brings in $73,546 a year and costs $47.36 per $100,000 of assessed property valuation, according to the auditor’s office.

Renewing the levies will not raise property taxes. Revenues can help pay for routine maintenance of roads and bridges as well as repaving, snowplowing and equipment.

The following businesses have local options on the ballot:
■ Wadsworth, precinct 1-D, Wal-Mart No. 2966, Sunday sales of wine and mixed beverages;
■ Granger Township, precinct D, Ridge Road Marathon, weekly sales of beer, wine and mixed beverages;
■ Medina Township, precinct B, Yours Truly, Sunday sales of wine and mixed beverages and spirited liquor;
■ Wadsworth Township, precinct B, Wadsworth Eagles, Sunday sales of wine and mixed beverages and spirited liquor.
