AMERICAN TOWNSHIP - The American Township Fire Department informational open houses at both station locations at 2110 Edgewood Drive and 105 W. Main St. in Elida.
Residents seeking information about the replacement levy on the May 6 ballot are encouraged to visit either station from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. today. The ATFD is asking residents to replace two fire levies passed in 1976 and 1987 and two existing EMS levies passed in 1989 and 1999. The new levies will combine the two existing fire levies of .85 mills and 4 mills to one single levy of 4.85 and two existing EMS levies of .5 and 3.5 mills into a single 4 mill levy.
Residents will be able to view equipment and facilities, meet personnel and learn why it is responsible to consider replacing the safety service levies at this time.
Revenue generated by the levies will be used to improve the response capabilities of the ATFD. For more information, contact Thomas Hadding at 419-339-3921.
