I have seen first-hand how the efforts of the Sandusky County Park District has improved the quality of life not only in Fremont but throughout Sandusky County. The 1 mill, 10-year tax levy on the May 8 ballot will replace the expiring levy at the end of this year and allow the continued operation of the quality facilities and services.
The levy will also provide for the continued operation and expansion of the very popular North Coast Inland Bike Trail and the extension of the Local Grant Program that provides improved outdoor recreation facilities in community parks throughout Sandusky County.
Can you imagine this area progressing economically if its finest assets are allowed to fall into disrepair? Conversely, can you imagine a future that is even better than now? Certainly, such a future would include well-maintained parks with activity programs for both children and adults, as these are the kinds of things that attract employers to invest in an area.
Vibrant communities do not happen by chance. They are created by people who can imagine a brighter future and who are willing to invest to make that future a reality.
