The Genoa Township Police Department has scheduled a series of open houses at their headquarters in an effort to inform voters about an upcoming property tax bond levy.
According to Police Chief Stephen Gammill, a citizen’s committee is recommending that the 40 year old Genoa Township police headquarters building be replaced.
As a result of that recommendation, voters are being asked to approve a property tax bond levy on the upcoming November 6 ballot that would be used for the construction of a new police station at a cost of up to $7 million dollars. The levy would have an estimated annual cost of about $28 per $100,000 of property value.
Gammill reports that in an effort to inform voters and answer questions about the project, the Genoa Township Police Department will host a series of open houses at their current headquarters located at 7049 Big Walnut Road. Residents who attend will be able to review new building renderings, ask questions and take a tour of the current facility.
The scheduled open house dates and times are as follows:
- Wednesday, October 17, 7pm-8:30pm
- Wednesday, October 24, 10am-noon
- Saturday, October 27, noon-3pm
- Tuesday, October 30, 7pm-8:30pm
The Genoa Township Police Department has also recorded a short YouTube video tour of their facility which can be viewed here.
