Twinsburg Twp. officials explain need for police levy

By Paula Published: September 23, 2010

From the Twinsburg Bulletin:

Twinsburg Township -- Citing rising costs and declining revenue for police service, members of the Safety Committee have endorsed a 3-mill replacement police protection levy that will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot.

"Passage of this levy will enable the township to maintain current policing levels in the near term," said Chris Hrach, a member of the five-person committee, following unanimous passage of the endorsement Sept. 20.

"Safety is the biggest issue facing the township, and I would hate to see a reduction of police staffing."

Trustees sent the 3-mill levy, which currently generates $115,625 per year toward the more than $700,000 annual cost for police service, to the ballot July 27. Police service is supported by two other levies, the three of which generate $262,269 per year for police protection.
