“It’s just mainly to maintain and keep our roads in the condition we’ve gotten them up to,” Kevin Pence, an Adams Twp. Trustee previously told the News-Sun. “Without the levy, our roads would decrease and then it takes a lot more money to get them back up to where we got them as of today.”

Other voters around the county approved renewal levies generating money for road improvements, fire and library services, cemetery upkeep and school upgrades.
