PERRYSBURG - Residents at the polls Nov. 5 will decide between continuing a property tax or facing vastly reduced garbage services.
The refuse levy generates about half of the $1.2 million budget for services. It would costs homeowners about $30.62 per year for each $100,000 of valuation, according to Dave Creps, the city's finance director.
Jon Eckel, director of public service, outlined the city's offering of waste services, including unlimited pickup, free pickup of mattresses and other large items, and yard waste service.
Elderly and disabled residents are encouraged to contact the department if they're unable to place their bins curb-side, because employees will walk up to their home to get them. 
Many of those services, modeled after Bowling Green's program, would be threatened if a two-year, 1-mill replacement levy is not affirmed by voters.
"It would make it so we would have to cut (services) to what every other community gets," Eckel said, referring to the end product of a levy failure as "bare-bones service."
