And Hicksville said ‘yes’ to a renewal levy for fire and EMS on Tuesday.

Renewal levies were approved for the Evergreen and Swanton Schools in Fulton County. And the county-wide Fulton County Board of DD renewal levy was approved with solid support. The village of Archbold said ‘yes’ to an increase in the income tax for police. And the Archbold Public Library replacement levy was approved. Delta village residents said ‘no’ to an advisory for medical marijuana cultivation in the community.
