1 days 3 hours ago | | | Email

PIQUA – Piqua’s YWCA Public Policy Committee hosted a Meet the Candidates night Wednesday evening, with Police Chief Bruce Jamison beginning the evening’s discussions to present information on Piqua’s public safety levy that will be on the Nov. 4 ballot. This levy is seeking to increase the earned income tax “one quarter of a percent” according to Jamison. The city is seeking these funds in order to add five officers to the police department and to keep six firefighters on staff. The funds from the increase will go solely to the Piqua police and fire departments.
