County Home Renewal Levy

Print This Story Print This Story

Harrison County’s County Home, located on State Route 250 just outside of Cadiz, has a 1.5 mill renewal maintenance and operation levy on the ballot this November 7th.  

Currently the County Home has 27 residents with another scheduled to arrive later in the week.  The main floor, where the residents stay, can only hold up to 30.  All residents and 23 employees are from Harrison County.

When I spoke with Joy Taggart, Superintendent of the County Home, she couldn’t express in words just how important this levy is to the daily operations.  The little bit that each resident pays barely covers the expense of employee wages.  The only way they are able to cover the daily expenses of food, electricity, heating and such is with this levy.  “If it wasn’t for our volunteers and the signs we have used over the past 20 years, we wouldn’t be able to spread the word about the renewal,” Taggart said.  When asked what would happen if the levy did not pass, she sighed deeply and answered very softly and slowly, “We would eventually close.”

Taggart also wanted to remind Harrison County that this is a RENEWAL levy.  “It will not change your taxes, but it could change the lives of our residents here at the County Home.  Please help to look out for Harrison County the same way they did when they were able to.”
