NORWALK

To splash or not to splash will be the question for Norwalk residents this November.

Voters have the opportunity to vote for the improvement and maintenance of the aquatic center. The aquatic center is asking for a renewal levy of the current 0.7-mill that will expire with the new year.

According to the Huron County Auditor's office, the levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $12.24 a year and will generate about $670, 285 during its five-year run.

The center has been on the ballot and passed every five years since opening in 1993.

Ken Leber, superintendent of the Parks and Recreation Department said the levy helps the center as well as Norwalk's residents.

"Renewing the levy," he said, "helps us to keep fees affordable for the community and keep pass rates down."
