Message from the Board

Road Levy Renewal

On November 5th, the Plain Township Board of Trustees will be seeking a 1.5 mill road levy renewal. This will NOT be an increase in taxes. The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home for tax purposes, $43.66 per year. The Road Department maintains over 174 miles of roadway. This last year, over 16.2 miles of roadway were paved in Plain Township, which allows us to pave roads on a ten to twelve-year rotation. The Road Department’s cost of doing business and maintaining its fleet has been continuously rising. This is due to inflation and the costs of gasoline, crude oil, paving materials and road salt.

The Trustees understand the economic burdens Township taxpayers are facing, but the passage of this levy is a critical component to maintaining safe streets that are in good condition for our residents. Well-maintained roads mean safe travel for Police, Fire, EMS vehicles and citizens. They also increase property values for citizens and businesses. Plain Township should be very proud of our Road Department. Supporting this renewal levy will allow our community to keep the excellent service we currently have, without any additional costs.
