A new levy could soon be set for the November ballot for voters in the village of Dennison.
Thursday night, council approved a measure to begin the process to place a 2.5 mill, five year levy before voters for the purchase of a new fire truck.
Councilman Frank Golec says the oldest truck currently in use by the village's fire department dates back to the mid-1980's.
If approved, the levy would generate $63,691.40 annually for Dennison and would cost the owner of a $50,000 home an additional $38.28 per year.
The levy would also allow for the purchase of equipment for the new truck. Golec says trying to transfer equipment over from the old truck is not an option.
Golec says he feels the levy is an important one.
Council must meet the August 8th filing deadline to put the levy before voters on November 6th.
