Marion County Board of DD levy for services passes by close margin

Marion County’s voters have ongoing investment into its developmentally disabled inhabitants: the 10-year renewal levy

Marion County’s voters have ongoing investment into its developmentally disabled inhabitants: the 10-year renewal levy to benefit the Marion County Board of Developmental Disabilities (MCBDD) has passed.

According to Marion County’s The benefits were being referred to as at 9:43 p.m., passing by a close margin with 51% of the county’s voters in guidance of the tax renewal levy, according to unofficial election effects.

Superintendent Cheryl Plaster stated that the passing of this renewal levy for the agency’s services does not straight have an affect on programs for the developmentally disabled, but it is extremely significant as the Board of DD will not need to have to pull cash form the running fund in order to maintain amenities.  

“This levy is to maintain our facilities, to sustain the buildings, but in accomplishing that we don’t have to take away from our operational value,” she mentioned.
