Sharon Township Votes No On Broadband

Sharon Township has voted no on a Broadband bond proposal that would have cost $4.9 million total, with 3.2583 mills ($3.2583 per $1,000 of taxable value) over 20 years levied in 2018. The estimated simple average annual millage rate required to retire the bonds is 3.2518 mills ($3.2518 per $1,000 of taxable value).

The bond would have paid the cost to acquire, construct, furnish, and equip a broadband provisioning system to provide broadband internet service in the Township, including high-speed fiber optic infrastructure, service lines, and necessary electronic equipment and building improvements, together with necessary interests in land, rights-of-way, appurtenances, and attachments.
