Perry Township's Issue 46, a 1.5-mill renewal levy for roads and streets, was approved Tuesday, Nov. 6, according to unofficial results from the Franklin County Board of Elections.

With all 18 precincts reporting, Issue 46 was approved 1,934 to 562 votes, or 77.48 percent to 22.52 percent.

The five-year levy is expected to raise $240,000 and would help pay for “general construction, reconstruction, resurfacing and repair of streets, roads and bridges,” according to the board of elections.

Township trustee Jim Roper said it also would help fund snow, leaf and brush removal and other road maintenance.

The levy will continue to cost $40 per $100,000 in property value and has an effective rate of 1.3 mills. Roper said the measure would not increase taxes for residents.
