General Fund Renewal Levy: May 2
04/27/2017
On Tuesday, May 2, voters of the City of Bellbrook will be asked to vote on the renewal of an existing 1.3 mill General Fund Levy.  This levy was originally approved in 1962 and has been either renewed or replaced every five years since.

The General Fund Levy generates approximately $210,000 per year and represents over 20% of the General Fund budget.  In addition to certain basic City services, the General Fund provides funding for capital projects throughout the City.  These projects have included street paving, public safety vehicles and equipment, and important drainage improvements.

Since this is a renewal levy, there will be no increase in taxes paid.  The Renewal will allow the current levy to continue as it was passed in 2012.  The City will receive the same amount of revenue as it has for the past five years.  The renewal will cost property owners the following:

Appraised Value of Property

$100,000

$150,000

$200,000

Current Taxes

$39/yr

$58/yr

$78/yr

$3.25/mo

$4.83/mo

$6.50/mo

Additional Taxes

$0/yr

$0/yr

$0/yr

$0.00/mo

$0.00/mo


Funding to the City of Bellbrook has been significantly cut by the State of Ohio.  The elimination of the Estate Tax, the reduction of the Local Government Funds, and the elimination of other state shared revenue has cost the City over $1,000,000 over the last few years.  Without this renewal levy, the City will have to make further cuts to operational costs and capital projects.

For information on how and where to vote, go to the Greene County Board of Elections website or call (937) 562-6170.
