Lewis County residents to vote on road tax extension


Next month, voters in Lewis County will decide if they want to renew a tax levy for road and bridge projects.

The ballot measure would continue a 21-cent tax levy for the highway department. Officials say if voters say no to the extension, it would mean that many necessary projects would go undone.

"We wouldn't be able to maintain are roads and bridges near like anything that we have been. We would have to let employees go and let equipment go and just go back to a bare bones roads and bridge operation which we don't want to see happen," said Lewis County Northern Commissioner John Campen.

Scotland County and the City of LaBelle also have tax continuation measures supporting road improvements on the April ballot.
