COLDWATER (WTVB) - It’s now official. Branch County Commissioners yesterday approved final ballot language for a Sheriff’s Department Road Patrol tax question that will appear on the November ballot, asking approval for a levy of three-quarters of a mill for five years. If passed, it will be on the December tax rolls this year for the 2013 taxes. County officials say it takes approximately one and a quarter million dollars to operate the road patrol and its enforcement functions. Approval of the levy would bring in an estimated 975-thousand dollars next year.
