FIRE LEVY INFORMATION
Jackson Township, Clermont County, Ohio: On June 16th, 2014 the Jackson Township Board of Trustees adopted Resolution (061614-1) which will place a continual 2.5 mill levy on the November 4, 2014 ballot. If approved, this levy will collect an additional $87.50 per year on a $100,000 valued residence.
The levy will support the Jackson Township Fire Department for the purpose of purchasing an emergency medical first responder vehicle, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training, and construction, maintaining and supporting operations of a new firehouse building. The levy will also support firefighter training,a cadet program, enhanced radio communications, and for volunteer recruitment and retention.
In the mid-1980’s, Jackson Township converted an existing pole barn to house the township’s fire department. Over the years, the fire department’s scale of growth to support fire, rescue and medical services has made the old pole barn structure obsolete to the point that all of the fire equipment cannot be housed within the structure. Currently two of the fire vehicles are housed in the township’s maintenance building.
