Austintown trustees: Defeated police levy will return to ballot

AUSTINTOWN — Township trustees will put the recently defeated police replacement levy back on the November ballot.

Voters said no to a 2.4-mill replacement levy that would have added an additional 0.8 mills and increased the levy’s annual revenue to $1.9 million for police services.

“This November you get to vote for governor,” Trustee Jim Davis said at tonight's trustee meeting. “Go talk to Richard Cordray or call Mike DeWine’s campaign and ask if they’re going to release the rainy-day fund back to the communities.
