HASKINS - Village residents will have a say this November in whether a 1.5-mill levy will continue.
Village council voted Monday night on two resolutions to submit the question to voters this fall, and to ask the Wood County Board of Elections to officially place the matter on the ballot.
The levy would run from 2014 through 2018, and collect approximately $29,360 per year. The funds collected are to be used for village expenses.
The resolutions were passed without fanfare, and went through as emergency measures, since the filing deadline for November's election is Wednesday.
In other business, council:
• Discussed the possibility of charging a rental fee for the local ball field and use of its shelter houses. Mayor Paul Gies noted, as an example, that Perrysburg has an agreement with that city's baseball groups to collect half of the groups' earned income each year as payment for use of the fields there.
• Discussed the possibility of holding a Committee of the Whole meeting sometime after the beginning of school to help inform council members about the village's finances, given the newness of some of the members.
"I think it'll help a lot when it comes time for budgeting," said Gies.
