Residents of the unincorporated area of Sharon Township will face two police levies on the ballot next Tuesday.

Police chief Don Schwind said at a recent candidates' night that he hopes both will be approved to allow his department to continue to provide high-quality service.

The first, Issue 47, will replace a 4.5-mill and a 3-mill levy approved years ago.

Issue 48 would replace a 3-mill levy.

All three levies were approved in the 1990s. If these issues are approved, they would again be collected at their full value.

That will mean property taxes will increase from $73.80 to $126 a year for every $100,000 of home valuation.

Also on the ballot next week will be a replacement and increase in the taxes levied in the Village of Riverlea.

Residents will be asked to replace a 4.5-mill operating levy with an increase of 0.5 mills.

The additional money is needed for infrastructure upgrades, according to village council members who spoke at a recent candidates' forum.
