PORT CLINTON

A renewal levy would provide a continuation of services and facilities for Ottawa County's senior citizens.

Ottawa County's senior levy, first introduced in 2004, is up for another three-year renewal.

The levy would provide and maintain senior citizens' services and facilities, including but not limited to home-delivered and congregate meals, respite care and Alzheimer's day care, senior center, home care and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance.

"It offers socialization and recreational opportunities," Ottawa County Commissioner Jim Sass said. "It improves the quality of life for our seniors. It would be devastating if it were pulled from them."

The levy supports six senior centers in Elmore, Genoa, Put-in-Bay, Danbury Township, Port Clinton and Oak Harbor.
