Dear Chagrin Falls Resident:
On November 5th, Village voters will be asked to vote on a 5.5 mill General Fund renewal levy which would begin to be collected starting in January of 2015. This five year levy simply RENEWS a 5.5 mill tax issue which expires at the end of next year. The Village General Fund operating levy has been 5.5 voted mills for 34 years.
The proposed levy is a renewal of the current tax rate and WILL NOT INCREASE YOUR PROPERTY TAXES. Your Village tax bill will remain the same.
The levy generates $975,000 per year, nearly 20% of the Village General Fund Budget. The following are services funded by your property tax dollars:
- Police and Fire Protection
- Street Maintenance
- Rubbish Pick-Up
- Ambulance Service
- Snow Removal
If you are interested in obtaining further information on this levy, please call me or Dave Bloom, Finance Director at (440) 247-5050.
