Police levy could go back on ballot in Willard

Although Willard residents on election day voted down an additional income tax to fund police positions, voters might not have seen the last of the issue.

Council is considering placing the levy request on the May ballot; it expired since the last time voters approved it about five years ago.

Funds from the 1/8 percent, five-year levy funds would allow the police department to keep a full-time detective, a full-time juvenile officer who will assist the detective and a school resource officer. The city would not be able to use the funds for any other purpose.

A household with a $40,000 annual income would pay $50 on this tax.

A story about this and other matters discussed at the meeting in Willard was published in the Reflector.
