Golf Manor asks renewal of 7-mill operating levy



The Enquirer

GOLF MANOR - To maintain basic operations and services, Golf Manor is asking residents to renew a 7-mill, five-year levy.

It will generate $280,620 a year, about 18 percent of the village's $1.5 million general fund revenue, and will cause no property tax increase.

The owner of a $100,000 house would continue to pay $149 in taxes a year for the levy.

The levy revenue would be used for police and fire protection, emergency medical services, administration, street repairs, leaf pick-up and other expenses.

The failure of this levy renewal would create substantial problems for this village of 4,000 residents, said Police Chief and Service Director Steve Tilley.

"We'd have to review all the jobs we do for the village."
