It appears that Chardon voters will have the opportunity to renew financial support for the fire department in November. City Council on May 10 initiated placing on the ballot a three-year renewal levy totaling 5 mills. The issue combines a 4-mill levy first approved in 2004 and a 1-mill tax added in 2012. Both were renewed in 2015 and are set to expire at the end of this year. “This is just the first piece of legislation, which asks the auditor to certify the amount of revenues that would be generated by the renewal levy,” Deputy Finance & Human Resources Director Heidi Delaney told council. “Next meeting you would do the second piece to formally put it on the ballot.”
