November 2020 Election Levy Education

Clermont County renewal levies on ballot

It is the purpose of the Clermont Chamber of Commerce to safeguard and strengthen the collective interests of the Clermont County business community.  In that regard, from time-to-time the Chamber will weigh-in on matters of public policy that influence our ability to create jobs and attract and retain successful businesses.

For the November 3, 2020 Election which includes renewal levies for Clermont Children’s Protective Services, Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board, and Clermont Senior Services, the Clermont Chamber will work to educate the voters on levy details. 

Clermont Children’s Protective Services

Clermont County Children’s Protective Services have a renewal of an .8-mill, 5-year levy on the November ballot. The levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $24.04 a year. Voters have approved the .8-mill levy seven times since 1986. Read more

Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board

Voters will consider a Clermont County Mental Health and Recovery Board .75 mil renewal levy. It will NOT increase property taxes. The cost is $20.91 per $100,000 valuation – which will provide about $3.1 million for services.

The levy allows the opportunity to continue to support families and individuals with mental health and addiction needs.

Without levy funding, there will be a decrease in availability of services, because state and federal funding is not sufficient to provide a full continuum of care. Read more

Clermont Senior Services

November 3, residents of Clermont County will have the opportunity to RENEW the Senior Services Levy. The levy on the ballot is a RENEWAL only levy. Originally passed in 2001, this levy is a 1.3-mill renewal levy, and the effective rate is 1.11 percent. Read more
