Brooke County Voters to Decide on Important Issues

Posted: Updated:

Commissioners in Brooke County are asking residents to consider renewing two levies that would help keep programs in the county afloat.

The county commission moved to place the county's five-year ambulance excess and fire levies on the ballots.


Brooke County Commission President Tim Ennis told WTRF.com, "there has been a lot of good done by these levies. The ambulance service and the fire levy will help the libraries and several agencies who actually need the funding to provide services to the people of Brooke County."

The commissioners say the levy rates won't change.

Ennis adds that with the economic condition in Brooke County, they didn't feel this was the right time to raise taxes.

Brooke County voters will be asked to consider the renewal of these two long-time county levies on the May 7 primary election.
