Fire district levy to be decided in Canfield and township



Published: Tue, July 29, 2014 @ 2:17 p.m.

CANFIELD

Residents of the township and city will have an operating levy for the fire district in front of them this November election.

The Cardinal Joint Fire District’s board approved the levy request Monday 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 yearly.

Fire district Chief Don Hutchison said this 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.

The resolution to put the levy on the ballot passed with a 4-0 vote. Board member and city Councilman John Morvay was absent from the meeting.

No way Chief...we need ambulances in Canfield before we need another station. Time to cut Lane's out of the loop. I don't need the fire department to come to my house and wait for the ambulance with me. They take way too long to get here from the other communities they consider important like Austintown, Niles, and Mineral Ridge. We've paid for training, equipment, and manpower and still get a bill from a private ambulance that comes from another town. Unacceptable. See you at the meeting.

It's time for the Valley's Fire Services to be consolidated & rationalized under County control . Taxpayers pay for too much duplication .
