2014 FCCS Levy to Support Children

The FCCS board has asked the Franklin County Commissioners to place a 10-year renewal of the 1.9 mill levy, which expires at the end of the year, on the November 4, 2014 General Election ballot. Passage of this levy will not increase property tax cost for homeowners. The cost to owners of a $100,000 home will remain at the current $54 per year.
