Leroy Twp. sets tax collector rate

The tax collector rate will stay the same in Leroy Township.

It will remain at 6 percent of the real estate taxes collected in the township.

Supervisors approved the rate at their last meeting. The current tax collector is Helen Petty.

Also, supervisors discussed a request from Canton Township. Leroy Township Supervisor Chairman Ted Tomlinson said Canton Township is proposing that Leroy Township go in with Canton Township and Granville Township to install a repeater to increase communication range. Leroy Township supervisors agreed to get more information about the cost. Tomlinson said it would be installed on an existing tower at Canton Lake.

In addition, supervisors said that a road worker will continue to monitor a sluice pipe on Jennings Road to make sure that it's not getting washed out.
