MWCD levies assessment
(2007-08-28)
(WOUB) - Property owners in 18 eastern Ohio counties will have to a pay special assessment for flood control.
The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District Board of Directors met tUESDAY afternoon in Zanesville and voted to levy the assessment.

The district says the majority of property owners would pay $12 per year for 20 years throughout a region that stretches from the Akron-Canton area all the way south to Marietta.

The fees would raise 270 million dollars to upgrade and maintain dams and reservoirs.

Some critics have questioned whether the assessment is really needed.
