Clark County Voters Approve Parks Levy
Clark County voters approved a sixth-tenths mill parks levy on Tuesday, as unofficial results show the levy passed with 57% of the vote.
The levy was an attempt to generate money to fund maintenance of green space, parks and bike trails throughout Clark County. The parks levy will generate annually $1 million for the National Trail and Parks Recreation District and the Clark County Parks District, the two groups responsible for the maintenance of the parks in Clark County.
The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $21 per year.
Springfield voters also re-elected incumbent City Commissioner Kevin O'Neil to another term. O'Neil defeated opponent Richard Spangler 55% to 45%.
