In Madison Township — according to unofficial results from the Fayette County Board of Elections — 275 voted for and 127 voted against a 1-mill, five-year cemetery renewal levy at Tuesday’s general election. According to Madison Township Trustee David Dorn, the renewal will help to keep the current two active, and three inactive, cemeteries in working order within the township.
“I want to thank all of the voters and township residents for coming out and supporting our levy and allowing us to continue taking care of the cemeteries the way we like to do it,” Dorn said on Tuesday evening. “It feels very good to see this support for levies in our township. It was a lot of support too, it didn’t just barely pass, it passed very well. So I am very happy.”
In Concord Township, a 1.5-mill, five-year fire levy also passed by a wide margin. According to unofficial results, 268 voted for the tax levy and only 70 voted against it for a 79.29 to 20.71 percent margin.
