DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Montgomery County voters approved levies for police and fire protection Tuesday.
Voters in Miami Township approved both police and fire levies. The 5.25 mill police levy is estimated to generate $3 million annually. The approval helps the department avoid layoffs and will provide funds necessary to seek national accreditation.
“This levy will help fill gaps in our funding and keep our officers on the streets,” Miami Township Chief of Police Chris Krug
said. “The safety of our residents and businesses are important to our department, and we are pleased we can continue offering the same level of service to the township.”
Harrison Township residents both renewed a standing levy and approved an additional levy. The combination of levies will ensure police funding will remain the same in the township.
