Township and city residents will be asked to approve an operating levy for the fire district in this November’s election.
The Cardinal Joint Fire District’s board approved the levy request this week and the paperwork was submitted to the Mahoning County Board of Elections Tuesday for the Nov. 4 ballot.
It is a 1.25-mill permanent levy that will generate $627,854 annually. It will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $43.75 per year.
Fire district Chief Don Hutchison said the levy is for the new fire station that will be built on Herbert Road, next to Canfield Township’s athletic fields.
“Whenever the board focused on building a fire station, they did not want to build it without having the funds to man it,” Hutchison said.
