Nitro Voters Approve Levy

Nitro voters headed to the polls over the weekend and okayed a special levy to increase taxes for supporting several public services. The 84 percent yes vote will give about $369,000 dollars each year for the city, and the money will go toward park improvements, street maintenance and repairs, street lights, police and fire wages, and the library. It's a 4-year levy that will go into effect July 1st. Property taxes will go up by less than a hundred dollars per year on a $100,000 house.
