ST. CLAIRSVILLE — Belmont County residents will see two tax levies on the November ballot this year.

Belmont County 911 will have a 1-mill levy will be cut to .75-mill — a 25% direct savings to taxpayers.

The levy funding has been used to upgrade and maintain the county's radio system and reducing its millage rate is a way to give back to supportive taxpayers while effectively managing first responder communications.

County commissioners and Belmont County Senior Services allowed for a .5-mill levy to expire at the end of last year for over $800,000 to property taxpayers.

Recently, commissioners passed a resolution for an upcoming senior services 1-mill renewal levy on the November ballot.

The plan is to expand more direct services for seniors.

Both levies, if passed by voters, will start beginning of 2022.
