CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – When it came to money issues, inflation didn’t seem to impact voters.
In additional to all renewal levies passing in the county, the Massillon Museum 1.5 mill levy and Lawrence Township 1.25 mill police levy passed.
A Pike Township road levy passed.
All were replacement levies.
But new money for the Louisville Schools, Lawrence Township roads and Canton Township Fire Department were rejected.
The Canton Township issue was failing by just 58 votes.
As we checked all the results, all renewal levies passed.
