YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Mill Creek MetroParks District asked for renewal of a 1.75 mill issue and a .25 mill tax increase to restore Lanterman’s Mill and renovate Ford Nature Center.

Voters gave their support at the polls, with 54 percent of voters approving the combined renewal and increase. It’s a 15-year tax.

It’s been a rough year for the park and its board, dealing with water quality testing and contamination from city sewage and other sources in the park’s lakes.
