Cross Creek renewal deserves your vote
Residents in the unincorporated areas of Cross Creek Township have just one issue to consider when they cast their votes in the May 4 primary election.
They are being asked to renew a 1-mill, five-year property tax levy. Money generated by the issue will cover the general construction, reconstruction, resurfacing and repair of streets, roads and bridges in the township. That includes the purchase of salt to keep the roads clear during the winter months and chip-and-seal material.
It’s money that is needed to allow officials to maintain and improve the 41.814 miles of roads in the township.
Township residents realize the value of the work paid for through the levy, and have renewed it every five years since it was first passed in 1976.
Officials with the township remind residents that it is a renewal, and its passage will not increase taxes. What it will do is allow the township to continue to provide residents with the best roads possible.
That work can be accomplished only as long as there is money to cover the expenses. Renewing the levy will provide the funds needed to do just that, and that’s why voters should vote in favor of the issue when they cast their ballots.
