One-Mill Levy a Must
to Keep Vital Services,
JCCouncil Tells Voters

The Jewish Community Council
has joined with other religious and
civic groups in urging voter sup-
port of Wayne County Proposition
No. 1 which will appear on the
ballot Tuesday. The proposition
would continue a one-mill levy
needed to maintain essential
county services in the fields of
hospital care, child care, mental
health, law enforcement. educa-
tion and recreational facilities.
In a letter and accompanying
literature sent to affiliated organi-
zations, ,Community Council Presi-
dent Lawrence Gubow speCified
some of the facilities which bene-
fit from the one-mill levy. They
include the Wayne County Gen-
eral Hospital, Child Development
Center, which provides for the
care and training of retarded and
emotionally disturbed children, the
foster home program, juvenile
court, public health department,
library services for the blind and
the care and upkeep of 4,000 acres
of parks and recreational facili-
Gubow also pointed out that
Proposition No. 1 does not call
for a tax increase. The proposal
continues in effect a one-mill
levy approved by Wayne County
voters in 1964. To the average
homeowner, the levy amounts to
about 50 cents per month.
County officials have indicated
that should the proposal fail.
many of the services and facilities
maintained by the funds derived
from the millage would have to
be curtailed or eliminated.
For literature and detailed in-
formation on the one-mill levy, call
