There are also three school district issues scheduled to be on the ballot.

Evergreen voters will be asked to approve a renewal and decrease of the district’s income tax. It would be for five years and the new rate would be 0.5 percent.

Pike-Delta-York voters will be asked to approve a a five-year, 6.65-mill substitute levy. It would mean no change for current residents but would allow future development to be taxed.

A five-year, 1-mill replacement levy for roads will be on the ballot in German Townshup. Royalton Township also has a road levy, a five-year, 1-mill renewal.
