POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Poland Village Council is considering asking voters for a road levy to fix the village streets.
Council gave first reading Tuesday to placing the 2-mill levy on the fall ballot. It would be for five years and generate a little over $114,000.
The village has never had a road levy before and has been relying on state funding to fix the 11 miles of streets it must maintain. The last time a street was paved was two years ago and it was only a half mile long.
Officials have just been patching the roads. The village is evaluating the roads right now to determine which streets need paved first if the levy gets approved.
