  Original Published: 11/6/2013Voters in Richland County opened their wallets for nearly every other issue on the ballot. The city of Mansfield's request for an extra 0.25 percent income tax passed. A replacement, 1-mill, 10-year replacement levy for Richland County Children Services passed by an unofficial vote of 12,450 to 9,219. The levy will generate $1.9 million annually and cost the owner of a $100,000 home $35 a year. Passage of the levy allows the agency to continue to leverage federal dollars and also allows the agency to access $1.3 million in federal funding. Collection of the levy will not begin until January 2015. The Mansifeld-Ontario-Richland County Health Department asked voters to renew a 0.5-mill, 10-year levy.And they did. The levy will generate $840,000 annually of the health department's $6.3 million budget. The renewal will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $17.50 a year. And voters also approved a 1-mill, five-year renewal levy for Richland County Senior Services. The levy will generate $1.9 million and cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $35 a year. The levy will allow the agency to continue to provide personal care and home-delivered meals to senior citizens in Richland County.
