The Norwich Township trustees took another step forward Dec. 11 in their plan to seek a fire levy on the May 7 primary ballot.
The trustees must file a petition by Feb. 6, 2013, with the Franklin County Board of Elections for the issue to be placed in the ballot.
The levy would be the first on the ballot since voters approved a 6-mill fire levy in 1998.
Township officials said Dec. 11 the amount of tax millage is yet to be determined, but they will ask Franklin County Auditor Clarence Mingo's Office for possible millage amounts that would generate $3 million, $3.5 million or $4 million.
