  • Summit DD last had a revenue increase in 2007.
  • The operating levy is more than 80% of the Summit DD’s budget.

The Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board is hoping that the county’s voters will give a collective thumbs up to Issue 17 in the Nov. 7 general election.

The 4.5-mill, 6-year issue, a proposed replacement tax levy, would generate about $66.1 million annually. Homeowners with a home valued at $100,000 will pay $158 a year, which will cost homeowners $3.58 more per month per $100,000 appraised value.
