The Beavercreek levy represents approximately 76% of the street levy fund revenue and is the primary funding source for 37 full-time employees, City Manager Pete Landrum said.

The 3.4 mill levy covers snow plowing, street sweeping, pavement repairs, roadside mowing, landscaping, ditching and tree trimming and generates about $4.64 million every year.

This levy will continue to provide funding for the operation of the street and engineering divisions. The street division maintains about 253 centerline miles of street, with accompanying street lighting, signs, traffic signals, pavement markings and storm sewer systems, Landrum said. The levy also covers salt purchase and traffic signal operation and sign maintenance.
