Approval of the fire levy will help the township afford the replacement of fire equipment.
“Maybe we can get the governor to give us some of our money back that the state took away from us,” Miller said. “I’m going to sure do everything I can to talk to the representatives and the senators of the state of Ohio, and try to get that put back into the townships.”
On the other hand, “I’m very elated about our fire levy; that’s a wonderful thing,” Miller said. That will allow the township to go to 24-hour service, with someone on fire duty at all times, “as soon as possible,” he said.
“We’ve just been doing great with our fire department,” said Ross Township Trustee Raymond Wurzelbacher. “With a part-time paid fire department, (Fire Chief) Steve Miller does a great job. I’m very pleased with how Ross Township is going right now.”
