50 North Looks To Put Levy On May Ballot

1/17/18 – 5:24 A.M.

Hancock County residents could see a levy for the 50 North senior center on the ballot in May. The Courier reports representatives for the organization asked the commissioners to put a .9-mill, 10-year capital improvement levy in front of voters this spring. If it passes, it would cost the owner of a $100,000 home around $32 a year.

Officials say money generated by the levy would help build a fitness center on the west side of the building. They also want to provide extra space for seniors with chronic diseases. The space would also help with physical, social, spiritual, emotional, mental and economic well-being.

The commissioners have until February 7 to submit the issue to the board of elections.
