A rally was held Monday to kick-off the campaign for a one-mill, ten-year replacement levy for Richland County Children Services. The Mansfield Senior High School Tyger marching band provided the musical entertainment in Central Park. The levy on the November ballot would replace an issue first passed in 1984, which generates $1.3-million a year. The new levy would generate $1.9-million, to keep up with increasing demand for child abuse and neglect investigations. The Children Services replacement levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $36 a year. It would not start being collected until 2015. The campaign co-chairs are former Mansfield Schools' administrator Doug Castle and WMFD-TV news anchor Brigitte Coles.
