Voters in Summit County will decide in March whether to increase funding for Summit Metro Parks. The Park District is seeking renewal of a 1.46 mill levy that is currently on the books and adding .54 mills for a total levy of two-mills. The additional millage would cost the average homeowner an extra $1.58 per month.

Metro Parks spokesperson Stephanie Walton said the proposed levy will bring in another $6 million dollars to the parks each year.

Summit County Children Services is looking to a levy renewal and increase in November to avoid budget cuts.

The levy calls for a 2.25-mill renewal along with a one mill increase. Children Services has been operating on a deficit for the past few years.

Director of Community Relation’s Ann Ream said there’s been a 36-percent increase in children custody since 2012, the last time the levy was renewed.
