New Middletown to discuss police levy at special meeting

Posted: Updated:

The New Middletown Village Council is holding a special meeting Wednesday night to discuss a proposed police levy.

The meeting, which starts at 7:00pm, will be at the village's Municipal Building on Main Street.  

Village officials will be reading the 2 mill levy that is planned to go on ballots this fall.

New Middletown Police Chief Vincent D'Egidio says that the new levy will cost around $75 a year for every $125,000 of home cost.  

If passed, D'Egidio says the levy will generate about $48,000 a year for the police department.

Police, according to Chief D'Egidio, are asking for the levy in order to sustain their levels of operation.

The department currently owns four crusiers, the newest of which is from 2010, and operates 24/7 with one officer on duty per shift.  

Chief D'Egidio says the department needs the levy because their local government fund was depleted and has now been eliminated by Ohio Governor Kasich in recent years.
