LIME CITY - Perrysburg Township trustees approved resolutions to seek three levies in November totaling 6 mills, half of which is new money.
A new 3-mill levy for police services would generate about $1.1 million per year for the department over its five-year life. It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $105 per year, with collections beginning in 2015.
Trustees also voted 3-0 to seek renewal of two expiring fire levies, one at 1 mill and the other 2 mills. Combined, the two generate $1,151,081.
In other business, trustees voted to hire a special investigative consultant at a flat rate of $5,000.
Township Administrator Walt Celley said services will include interviewing and crime scene investigation.
After the meeting, Celley said the investigator was not hired as a result of a case Wednesday morning in which a body was found in a home in Perrysburg Heights, but that he may assist in that investigation.
Trustees also:
• Heard that the township was not selected to receive funding for a noise barrier under the Ohio Department of Transportation's Turnpike Mitigation Program. Celley said none of the 12 noise wall projects submitted were selected to receive money.
• Agreed to provide a letter confirming a previous commitment of up to $300,000 to contribute to a joint project to rework the intersection of Buck and Lime City roads. The letter was requested by the Wood County Engineer's Office, which must re-apply for Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality funds for the project, said John Musteric, chief deputy engineer.
• Learned that $500,000 in grant funding previously awarded from ODOT for Third Street renovations has been received, and the project will proceed.
