Taxpayers pay less for JFS levy
Wood County taxpayers will save more than $1.8 million as the result of a 2014 levy reduction.
Working with Job and Family Services Director Dave Wigent, Wood County Commissioners have requested the budget commission reduce collection of the agency's Adult and Protective Services levy by 50 percent next year.
This is the third time since 2000 the agency has been able to voluntarily reduce levy collections, according to a news release.
"The JFS staff has been extremely responsible with expenditures relating to this levy, which is what has enabled the reduced collection for one year," the release stated.
County complex restroom meets ADA needs
Wood County Commissioners announced the installation of a new restroom in the county office building to serve those with disabilities.
Working with Tim Hainen, facilities director, commissioners identified the need for a new restroom in full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The complex was built in 1976, prior to the ADA.
