Four area fire levies

November 3, 2012
The Marietta Times

Five levy proposals to support four area volunteer fire departments will appear on the general election ballot.

Warren Township voters will be asked to renew a proposed 1-mill levy for fire and emergency protection.

In Marietta Township, voters will be asked to renew a five-year, 1-mill tax for ambulance or emergency medical services. The levy would generate $78,862 annually for the department and cost $28.27 a year for the owner of $100,000 home (tax evaluation value). It would allow the department to continue operations as is, with a paid staff in place 12.5 hours a day.

Marietta Township voters will also be asked to approve an additional tax for ambulance or emergency medical services, or both. The five-year, 1.6-mill levy would generate $138,184 annually for the department and cost $49 a year for the owner of $100,000 home (tax evaluation value). It would allow the department to have a paid staff at the station 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Watertown Township voters will be asked to approve a replacement tax for fire and emergency protection. The five-year, 1.5-mill would be first due in 2014.

Newport Township voters will be asked to approve a five-year, 3-mill replacement levy for fire and emergency protection.
