Three continuing levies of 1 mill or less are currently being used to fund police services.
This latest levy on the ballot marks the first time the township has asked voters to approve a police levy in almost four decades. The last time was 38 years ago in 1978, according to the township.
A 2.72-mill public services levy renewal for the city of Oakwood was winning big late Tuesday, with 72 percent of voters approving the measure with just two precincts yet to report, according to the Montgomery County Board of Elections.
The levy is expected to annually generate about $460,000 a year for police, fire and roadway maintenance, according to the city.
The 2.72-mill levy was first approved by voters in 1991 and approved every five years since that date.
The levy renewal will cost property owners about $48 a year per $100,000 of appraised estimated value.
