The Genoa Township Police Department is getting new digs.
With all 159 Delaware County precincts reporting, the township’s 0.8-mill, 10-year bond issue was winning handily, 9,104 votes to 4,282, or 68 to 32 percent, on Election Day, according to unofficial results from the Delaware County Board of Elections.
The building will be at the northwest corner of Big Walnut Road and state Route 3.
Those who own a property valued at $300,000 by the Delaware County auditor can expect to pay an extra $7.03 per month.
A 0.4-mill, four-year replacement fire levy for the Harlem Township Fire Department was winning on election night by a vote of 1,422 to 677, or 68 to 32 percent.
Meanwhile, a 7.0-mill, three-year fire/EMS renewal levy for the Orange Township Fire Department was cruising to victory with a vote of 9,924 to 3,956, or 72 to 28 percent.
In separate ballot issues, Liberty Township voters said “yes” to electric- and gas-aggregation programs by votes of 4,683 to 3,160, or 60 to 40 percent, and 4,642 to 3,173, or 59 to 41 percent, respectively.
Aggregation is essentially a bidding program for the lowest-priced energy in the open market, locking in the lowest price.
The measure includes only properties of the unincorporated areas of Liberty Township, not residents of the city of Powell.
