Some WVa voters faced with levy decisions

Nov. 05, 2012 @ 07:34 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Voters in some West Virginia counties will have several tax levies to consider when they head to the polls on Tuesday.

The Charleston Gazette reports that voters in Boone and Roane counties will decide on four levies each.
In Boone County, voters will choose whether to continue extra tax funding for fire departments, libraries, ambulance service and senior nutrition program that has been in place since 1987.

Roane County residents will decide on an emergency services levy, a senior nutrition levy and two to help fund the solid waste authority and create an after-school program.

The levies require a 60 percent majority to pass.
