I am writing in support of the Cridersville Police Department levy. Even a small community such as ours needs adequate police protection. In 2020 alone, our officers responded to 1,808 calls involving our community.
Our police have provided excellent service in spite of declining state and local revenue funds over the past 10 years. The extra 0.5 percent tax increase on the May 4 ballot will provide the necessary financing our hard-working police force needs to continue to “protect and serve.”
Good policing is well worth the investment. On May 4, please vote yes pn the Cridersville levy to keep our police strong.
