Services in jeopardy should levy fail

Further village services stand to be cut in the event a replacement levy fails for a third time, Quincy Village Council said during a recent regular meeting.

A street lighting contract with Miami Valley Lighting could have to be broken if the 3.2 mills levy fails again, council members warned.

The four-year lighting contract expires in 2016 and Fiscal Officer Sandra Ward said there are penalties and removal of equipment for breaking the contract.

The levy, which funds current operating expenses such as outside night lights, generates about $17,000 and also pays for police coverage with the Logan County Sheriff’s Office and fire services.

In other action, council authorized a purchase of 750 gallons of propane from Hi-Grade Oil for a locked-in rate of $1.759 per gallon.

Residents are also reminded that all-terrain vehicles, mini-scooters and go-karts are not permitted on public streets.

Council continues to ready documentation necessary to apply for removal of dilapidated residential buildings through the Moving Ohio Forward program.

Council meets again Sept. 4
