The Lima News sent questionnaires to representatives for every issue on the ballot in Allen, Auglaize, Hardin, Putnam and Van Wert counties for this election section. Representatives had the opportunity to discuss the major issues with their issue. Only basic information from the board of elections identifies organizations that did not return a questionnaire yet. We continue to receive more questionnaires every day, so check back here soon to see the latest submitted answers.



VILLAGE OF WREN



Levy sought: 3.5 mill replacement tax levy for five years



Purpose: Current expenses



How much will it raise per year for your organization? $5,572



Cost of the levy to taxpayers: $55.13 per year for a $50,000 home; $110.25 for a $100,000 home



Why does your organization need the levy? The Village of Wren is seeking a replacement of the current levy in order to receive more money to offset current expenses.



What will happen if the levy fails? If the levy fails, the Village of Wren will struggle to pay current expenses. This will put the village in financial hardship, which could lead to fiscal emergency. The village will then be unable to maintain or make improvements to the town such as it has in the past.
