LAKE TWP. During the regular meeting on April 27, the Lake Township Board of Trustees approved sending two renewal levies to the Stark County Auditor to certify the revenues that would be generated.

Board President Steve Miller said one levy is a 1.25-mill renewal EMS levy to maintain emergency medical services and the second levy is a 1.5-mill road levy for the construction, reconstruction, paving and repair of roads and bridges. Both levies are for five years starting in 2020 and first due in 2021.

The 1.25-mill levy will be 12.5 cents per $100 evaluation and the 1.50-mill levy will be 15 cents per $100 evaluation. Trustees said that neither levy would cost a homeowner any additional money.
