Buckland Mayor Dan Lambert says he plans to meet with Buckland Village Council members and discuss where to go from here after a levy for fire and EMS services was voted down by residents for the second time on Tuesday.
The 5-year, 3-mill property tax levy for fire and EMS services for the village was defeated 45 to 34, according to unofficial results of Tuesdayâ€™s general election from the Auglaize County Elections Board.
If passed, it would have generated the $7,000 needed to pay fees to both the Buckland Volunteer Fire Department â€” $5,400 for fire services and $1,500 to the Cridersville Fire Department for EMS services.
For more information on the levy, see the Wednesday, Nov. 6 edition of the Wapakoneta Daily News.
