HOWLAND TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – Howland Township has never had to ask residents to approve a general tax levy, but one will be on the ballot next month.

For the first time ever, the township has a five-year, 1.5-mill general tax levy on the ballot.

According to township officials, the extra tax money is needed, because the township was only able to pave one road this year.

Although the money will help with some road maintenance, it will also be used to continue some services that the citizens of Howland are accustomed to, Howland Township Trustee Chairman Rick Clark said.

If passed, the levy could cost the average homeowner in Howland an extra $50 per year.
