LEVY INFORMATION
Unofficial results from the Delaware County Board of Elections show each of the following township levies have passed.  
police levy title 2

revised mills police

Reduced regular 5-year renewal (4.2 mills)

Cost savings related to Township-funded medical insurance premiums and reduced workers' compensation expenses have resulted in budget carryover. Chief Gammill presented several budget options to the Board of Trustees who chose one capable of continuing the present, high level of service.  

Fire


revised mills fire
 
Reduced regular 5-year renewal (5.3 mills)

The Fire Department operated efficiently and implemented an innovative billing program to capture revenue from insurance companies for medical transportation services. These efforts have made it possible to maintain all existing resident services with a reduction in the regular operating levy.

Parks
revised new mills
 New (transferred savings) 3-year (.6 mills)

Park funding is not presently guaranteed in the General Fund. This proposed levy uses the savings from police and fire to dedicate consistent investment in parks. A new “Parks & Trails Master Plan” has been adopted to guide improvements should voters approve this measure.
