Twinsburg Residents Vote In Favor of Issue 2 – Supporting Police and Fire

Thank You Issue 2 Feature

Twinsburg residents voted in favor of supporting their Police and Fire departments, passing Issue 2 at the ballot box May 4. By passing the 2.4 mill property tax, the City will be able to procure the funds needed to maintain the current level of safety services. Unlike many other communities in Ohio, Twinsburg does not have dedicated revenue to support the Police and Fire departments and this levy will secure those funds thanks to the $7 per month per $100,000 in property value.

Branch Pick Up Begins Monday, May 3rd

Branch Chipping

The next round of Branch Chipping will begin on Monday, May 3rd.

Branch pickup begins on the first Monday of each month from April thru October. To ensure collection, please put branches out on the 1st day, and they will be collected by the crews as they make their way thru the City.

What If Issue 2 Fails? Will Police and Fire Be Funded?

If Issue 2 fails, police and fire pensions will still be fully funded (as is required by Ohio constitution). They have been subsidized by our General Fund to the tune of $1 million per year for decades now. Passing issue 2 will create a dedicated fund for pensions, as well as for the first time in history, a dedicated capital fund for police and fire as well.

Thoughts On Issue 2?

When it comes to Issue 2 on the May 4th ballot, you either support our police and fire services or you don’t. 

I can give you a million reasons why I believe a YES vote is the correct vote, because I fully support our police and fire services.

There’s a narrative being pushed by people who stand against most everything the City does. They’ll try to convince you that the City is wasteful with tax money (not true), doesn’t need money they ask for (not true), not transparent (not true), doesn’t do their due diligence (not true), etc. 

Issue 2 Ballot Language

There has been quite a bit of discussion and confusion already around the upcoming Issue 2 on this November’s ballot. Sadly, spreading misinformation is a standard tactic by some wishing to muddy the waters around City finances and initiatives. If you have questions about this or any other issue, please feel free to reach out to me, another member of Council or City Hall. We will be happy to to provide you with the correct information so you can make an informed decision.
