Austintown seeks replacement of police levy



Published: Thu, December 1, 2011 @ 9:03 p.m.

AUSTINTOWN — Township trustees approved a resolution asking the Mahoning County auditor to certify a replacement police levy for the March ballot.

Trustee David Ditzler said during the board’s special meeting tonight the levy would replace a current 1.6-mill police levy voters first approved in 1976.

“We want to replace this police levy to try and bring it up to today’s valuations,” he said. “With our safety forces, we’ve pared them down as much as we can already.”

Township Fiscal Office Michael Kurish said the

current levy collects only about 38 percent of its original value, or about $400,000, annually.

Ditzler said the auditor’s office will determine how many mills the levy would be and how much it would raise each year and certify it.
