HURON TWP.

Erie County commissioners Bill Monaghan and Nancy McKeen voted 2-0 this week to approve a resolution taking a proposed levy for the Erie County Care Facility off the ballot.

The resolution cancels a planned Feb. 3 special issue on the proposed half-mill property tax levy, which voters narrowly rejected in November.

County administrator Mike Bixler said feedback he's gotten from voters suggests commissioners were correct when they decided last week to cancel the election. Bixler said he heard from voters who supported the levy last time who planned to vote against it in February because they felt it was wrong for the county to put it back on the ballot immediately.
