on your ballot
What is this levy for?
It provides vital funding for street, road and bridge maintenance, repair, paving, construction and reconstruction throughout our village.
Is this a new tax?
No. This is not a new tax.
How long have we had this levy?
New Concord residents have passed this every 5 years since it began in 1985.
35 years with no increase in millage – 3.2 mills
How much will I pay?
The millage is based on the property value of your home. For example, if your home is valued at $100,000 you’ll pay $112 a year.
What is a replacement tax levy?
It extends the expiring levy for another period of time, in our case, for 5 years. It is based on current property values.
