Voters in the Nov. 8 general election will see two countywide tax issues, while Bellefontaine City Schools has asked voters to approve two renewal levies.
Around the county, four villages and two townships also have requested tax issues, while four local options for liquor sales will also appear on ballots, according to information provided by the Logan County Election Board after Wednesday’s 4 p.m. filing deadline for issues and candidates in non-partisan races.
In the races, 110 Logan County residents have thrown their hats in the ring for school board, township trustee and village mayor, clerk and council positions. A full list of those candidates is on Page 4.
The two countywide tax requests include the continuation of a 0.5 percent sales tax that primarily supports road and bridge projects.
According to the document, 60 percent goes toward county roads and bridges, while 16 percent goes to township road projects and 16 percent toward city and village street projects. The remaining 8 percent is used for economic development and regional planning.
The portion going toward township and municipal projects, as well as economic development is up slightly from previous years.
