In an unprecedented move, more than $1.8 million will be returned to cities, townships, and public agencies all over Lorain County.

The money will come from county auditor Craig Snodgrass’ Real Estate Assessment Fund, generated annual from a small percentage of tax collections.

So how much will be put back in local pockets?

The Wellington school system will get an unexpected windfall of $23,894 and the Lorain County Joint Vocational School will receive $52,737.

The village of Wellington will get $1,515 back and Wellington Township will receive $879.

Another $3,187 will go to the Southern Lorain County Ambulance District, which provides local coverage, and $2,920 will go to the Wellington Fire District.

Herrick Memorial Library will have a return of $712.

“This is the first time Real Estate Assessment funds will be returned in Lorain County and we will look at it again in the future,” Snodgrass said.
