Township seeking 8.25-mill renewal fire levy in November
Washington Township Trustees voted July 14 to seek a renewal of an existing five-year tax, which would result in no tax increase for residents. The 8.25-mill levy on the November ballot supports the Township’s Fire Department and would renew the same levy voters passed in 2010. With the approval of voters, taxpayers will continue to pay $243 annually for every $100,000 of home value.
The renewal will continue to provide 75 percent of the fire department’s anticipated annual budget. Earlier this year, Trustees saved residents $500,000 a year by transferring the responsibility of Township parks to the City of Dublin and Metro Parks. That savings, in part, allows Township administration to continue providing services at current levels without asking for a tax increase over the next five years.
Funds generated by the levy will be used for day-to-day expenses to respond to emergencies, accidents and fires and replace equipment, including a 22-year-old ladder fire truck.
