Tax is­sue likely for health dis­trict

The Columbus Dispatch - - Front Page - By Holly Zachariah

The Pick­away County Gen­eral Health Dis­trict plans to ask vot­ers to ap­prove a prop­erty-tax levy to help sup­port and ex­pand its pro­grams.

The dis­trict’s Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil — made up of representatives from the county’s 15 town­ships, eight vil­lages and the city of Cir­cleville — voted 9-7 Thurs­day night to seek a 0.5-mill levy, most likely in the Novem­ber elec­tion. But the Pick­away County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers must first of­fi­cially ap­prove putting the is­sue be­fore vot­ers.

The de­ci­sion comes af­ter a few years of wran­gling over how to best fund the com­bined health dis­trict.
