The only issue appearing on the May 7 Special Election ballot for all Williams County voters found success in its second appearance before voters. While the proposed levy for the Williams County Soil and Water Conservation District was narrowly defeated by a 47.5%-52.5% margin last November, the levy was supported in the May Special Election and passed by a margin of slightly more than 57%. The 0.4 mil levy, which will amount to $0.04 for each one hundred dollars of valuation, is for the purpose of construction and maintenance improvements of Soil and Water Conservation District programs by the Williams County Soil and Water Conservation District and will collect $271,000 per year. The levy will run for five years and will first be due in 2014.
