To the Editor:
On Nov. 6, Carroll Hills is asking the taxpayers of Carroll County to renew one of the levies. This letter is to inform the voters that for the last five years or more, Carroll Hills has carried over one million to one million five hundred thousand dollars each year. They are on track to carry over at least one million five hundred thousand this year in their accounts.

The taxpayers should be able to keep this money they could spend to buy needed products and services. This in turn would provide jobs and sales tax revenue.

In addition, their other levy we passed in 2008 which as been collecting 2.7 mills, is going up Jan. 1, 2013, to the full three mills. This will provide even more of our tax dollars they don’t need.

The number I quoted came from the Carroll County Auditor’s office and can be checked by calling 330-627-2250.

The success or failure of this levy is up to the voters, however I believe the voters need all the facts.
