    Springfield trustees spent time considering options for a road levy to come before voters, seeking a solution to decreasing revenue and at the same time a measure that would have the least impact on property owners. During the course of about four special meetings, trustees reviewed the following options for the 1-mill levy, which was first approved in 1994 and will expire Dec. 31: a renewal of the levy, which collects $178,000 for the township and costs the owner of a $100,000 property $17.50 annually; the replacement of the levy, which would bring in $272,315 and cost the same property owner $38.50; and the renewal of the levy with a 0.5-mill increase, which would generate $315,040 and cost the property owner $35.88 annually.
