Another step toward putting a levy on the ballot for the Arlington swimming pool and parks was taken late last week. The Courier reports village council agreed to ask the Hancock County Auditor’s Office to figure out how much revenue a levy would generate. A special meeting on the subject was held Friday.
Village officials say they will likely place a 2-mill continuing levy on the November ballot. Initial estimates figure that 1 mill of taxation in Arlington will raise $20,000 per year.
Concerns about the rising costs of pool repairs started the conversation about a levy earlier this year. The village has until August 10 to place a levy on the ballot this fall.
