TWINSBURG, OH – (May 5, 2021) – 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.
“First, we would like to thank our residents for supporting this levy,” said Twinsburg Mayor Ted Yates. “Our Police and Fire departments have done so much for our city and our residents; it means a lot to know our community has their backs as much as they have ours. We have worked hard to reduce spending in the city and I’m glad to see the residents continue to support our efforts and came out to vote in favor of our safety services.”
Issue 2 funds can only be spent on safety services and the passing of the 2.4 mill property tax means the City will not have to make difficult decisions, such as billing residents monthly for trash & recycling pick up. The levy also means certain capital improvement projects can be scheduled as planned.
“The City of Twinsburg is a growing community with needs and services aimed at protecting our way of life,” Yates added. “We will continue improving our services and ways in which we support the community. Our priority, as always, is protecting our residents and providing the best possible care for our community. With the help of our residents and all who worked so hard on passing this levy, we will be able to provide for those who risk their lives every day.”
