PRETTY SIGHT AT LAKE - Christmas Trees surround Conneaut Lake. Photo was taken from the Barbara J on the Friday after Thanksgiving. There are some 100 lighted trees around Conneaut Lake and are especially nice to view during the dark evening hours with the lights reflecting into the lake itself.

Linesville real estate taxpayers face a 3 mill real estate tax increase in the 2015 year based on action taken by a 5-1 majority when council reconvened their Dec. 9 meeting on Dec. 11. A final vote must be taken at a meeting to be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 30, as council puts final touches on the 2015 budget.

The action on December 11, had council vote to establish a line item in the budget of $120,000 to be used for property maintenance - and only property maintenance issues - and setting the tax millage at 15.2, among the highest in the county.

By contrast, nearby Cochranton has a millage rate of 14:25.

It would be the second increase in Linesville millage in the past two years as the 2013 millage was raised 2.2 mills by 4-3 vote in December 2012.

Adding the property maintenance item in the budget of the $120,000, had council add $30,000 in income from the increased taxes as payment on a loan council will have to take out to began pay back on that loan.
