Council voted to place a 1.5 mill, five-year road levy on the November ballot.  Passage of the levy will increase taxes by $52.50 per $100,000 of property value for five years.  Funds will go towards paving the five longest roads needing attention: Ashleigh Dr., Bel Meadow Lane, Kensington Circle, Lake Louise and Sheerbrook Drive.  In addition, the Village anticipates the need to pave Bell Road east of Chillicothe Road sometime before 2024 at an estimated cost of $862,000.
