Harrison Committee Approves Public Safety Levy

Posted On May 02, 2014

(Harrison, Oh.) – This November, voters in the City of Harrison will be asked to decide whether to approve a levy for police and fire department services.

The Harrison Press reports that that 4.8 mill levy ballot issue was approved by a committee of city and union leaders on April 21.

If it passes, the levy would produce $1 million in revenue each year to keep police and fire services at their current high levels. It would also provide raises for the City of Harrison’s 72 union employees and prevent city layoffs.

The levy equates to an additional $168 in annual tax on a property valued at $100,000. For a $200,000 valued property, the tax would be $336 a year.
