The United Scioto Senior Activities are asking residents of Scioto County to vote for their .02 mil renewal levy that will appear on the November 8th ballot.
"If you look at your tax bill this levy represents just a few pennies," Renee Ellis, Executive Director of the United Scioto Senior Activities said. "This levy means a lot to us in terms of generated income."
Ellis said the levy generates roughly $100,000 a year. Money generated from the levy will be used for maintenance and support of senior citizen services or activities.
She said funds from the levy help fund such programs as, transportation to and from doctor appointments, transportation to the grocery store and a verity of other services.
"There are a lost of people that depend on us to provide these services. These services would be very difficult to provide without this levy," Ellis said. The older adults of this community have paved the way for us and we need to make sure services are in place for them," Ellis said.
She said the rate of the levy has not changed since it's inception.
"If you look at the cost verses the benefit I don't know why you would not vote for this levy," Ellis said.
