Greene County Voters Pass Library Levy, Vote Down Yellow Springs CBE
The Greene County Public Library was one of several dozen Ohio library systems asking voters for money. The library was asking for a 9/10-mill increase and renewal of its previous five-year levy. With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, unofficial results show the levy passing with 58 percent of the voters approving the measure.
Yellow Springs residents weighed in on whether the village should fund infrastructure for a new business park at the edge of town. Voters in the village overwhelmingly said "no" to idea, as unofficial results indicated that 63 percent rejected the plan.
The proposal, called the Center for Business and Education or CBE, would have opened up new land to development by funding infrastructure.
