Richland County Children Services is putting a one-mill, ten-year replacement levy on the November ballot.

Director Patty Harrelson was joined by several board members Thursday morning, as the commissioners gave final approval to placing the issue before voters.

Harrelson says it replaces a levy that's been on the books for thirty years.

The Children Services levy would generate $1,948,000 a year, and help the agency keep up with an ever growing caseload.

This levy, combined with Children Services' other one-mill levy, would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $5 a month.
