Willard City Schools voters to consider bond levy for library improvements

Residents of Willard City Schools in November will vote on a .75-mill, 15-year bond levy for the Willard Memorial Library that will bring in $1.6 million for capital improvements.

Willard Memorial Library is part of the Huron County Community Library, which covers several area libraries. However, the levy, if approved, would only cover Willard.

Huron County Community Library director Laura Lee Wilson said since the library is a school district library, the bond issue must fall below the school district's debt limit. The state limits how much debt each school system can incur. Therefore, the library must work in conjunction with the district through the process of trying to place the bond issue on the November ballot.

"They're the library district's taxing authority," Wilson said, referring to Willard City Schools.
