WILLIAMSPORT – A replacement levy that was set forth by the Village of Williamsport to support its ambulance and emergency medical service hangs in the balance of a recount at Pickaway County Board of the election.
The property tax replacement levy that increased to 2.5 Million an increase of 1.15 Million for 5 years starting 2023 at first failed by one vote in the unofficial results during the General Election on November 2, 2021, but during the official results one vote was found, in the 63 additional absentee ballots and 79 provisional ballots that were not yet counted, resulting in a tie.
Ties in elections are still failed as it did not receive a majority of affirmative votes, but the tie triggers an automatic recount.
That recount will commence to begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at the board office.
