Nov/Dec 2019

What is on the ballot? The Library is asking voters to approve a 5-year renewal of the Library’s one-mill levy. This is the same levy term and millage that the voters approved in 2010 and 2014. How will it affect your taxes? Your taxes stay the same. Even if your property is reassessed, the tax stays the same until your property is sold. Homeowners can research their home’s assessed value through the Licking County Auditor website ( What will the library do with the funds? This is an operating levy which means funds can only be used for daily operations such as buying the materials that are available for borrowing, paying staff, purchasing supplies, and the maintenance and operation of the library building. The funds provided by this levy will be used to continue the exceptional library service the residents of Granville have enjoyed for many years. Where can I find more information on the levy?
