The Williams County Heath Department is seeking renewal of a five-year, 1-mill levy in the upcoming November election. If passed, the levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 house $100 a year, with collection beginning in January 2016.
The levy actually, is not a new tax. It’s simply a renewal that will fund the department’s efforts to continue to offer a wide range of services that officials say are vital to the health of all county residents.
The levy, if passed, will bring in about $600,000 annually, amounting to approximately 40 percent of the department’s $1.7 million annual budget.
