Here are four things included in the proposed agreement.

1. The district’s board of trustees will remain at five members.

2. The district’s trustees – “at the appropriate time” – will pursue a levy to fund its operations. The district’s board will determine an amount to replace existing township and city levies that now fund it. “To the extent that the participating political subdivisions have fire or emergency medical services levy funds remaining,” those funds would be used to retire any debt on equipment and to purchase equipment to be leased to the district as needed.

3. Political subdivisions may join the district. Those new members “will have taxes levied at the same rate as is effective in the district.”

4. Any member – pursuant to Ohio Revised Code – may withdraw from the district by providing a 90-day written notice of its intent to adopt a resolution to withdraw.
