HOMER TWP. — Township trustees say reduced funding from the state is the reason they are asking voters next month for more money to maintain roadways.
The five-year, 2.5-mill replacement levy would cost owners $87.50 annually for a home valued at $100,000 — $28.39 more than they are paying now, according to the Medina County auditor’s office.
The levy would raise $174,500 a year.
Trustee Bryan Rose said no specific roads need fixing any more than others.
The money, he said, would be used for all roads.
“They all need it,” Rose said. “There’s constant maintenance.”
Rose said he wished the township wouldn’t have to ask for more money.
“We don’t like it,” Rose said, “but we need it.”
