Park Levy

Dear Editor

I am writing in support of the St. Clairsville-Richland Township Memorial Park operating levy. This levy is needed due to cuts in funding from several government sources.

The levy is for only .25 mills which amounts to $7.65 for a $100,000 home or $15.31 for a $200,000 home per year as examples.

This is an operating expense levy which will fund such things as chemicals for the pool, pool and park maintenance workers, utility bills, insurance, supplies for the pool and park, repairs and many other operating expenses. Without additional funding the pool may not open as usual or days and hours of operation may be lessened. Park maintenance would also be effected.

In closing, I encourage all residents of Richland Township to vote for the levy and keep our wonderful park operating to full capacity. With all the upgrades in recent years it is truly a gem in our own backyard.

See you at the pool or in the park.
