There is an extremely important item up for vote in November. You will be asked to support the Miami County Park District by approving their request for a tax levy, and I urge you to vote “For” it.

TROY — As the Miami County Park District continues to welcome more visitors each year, it has seen expanded programming and more budget demands.

After operating off a 1.1-mill levy since 2001, the board in November is asking voters countywide to approve a 1.5 mill, 10-year replacement levy with the increase.

“We have been at the same millage for 15 years and have done a great job of managing those funds to get to this point,” said Scott Myers, park district executive director.
