Minerva Park residents voted May 4 to continue their financial support for the village.

In unofficial results from the Franklin County Board of Elections, voters approved a five-year, 4-mill replacement levy 252 to 121, or 68 percent to 32 percent.

This continued what Mayor Lynn Eisentrout recently described as a longstanding tradition among a majority of the 1,283 people who live in the village's 560 homes. She said last month that Minerva Park voters have never rejected a levy.

The replacement levy, which was placed on the primary ballot by a unanimous vote of village council members Feb. 8, will cost residents the same $122.50 for every $100,000 of assessed property valuation as the levy that expires this year.

Anticipated revenue from the levy, according to the resolution passed by council, is $155,010.32 a year. That's based on the most recent assessed valuation of property in the village limits of $38,337,580.
