Since the city of Centerville annexed Dille family land in 2006, the city, Sugarcreek Township and developers of Cornerstone of Centerville have “battled over the annexation, shares of tax revenues and responsibility for fire service,” the Dayton Daily News reports. The developers, Oberer Companies, “want the Ohio Supreme Court to block a levy request” that “would provide fire and emergency medical services” for the township but excludes the Cornerstone area, which currently receives fire and EMS service from the township. Sugarcreek Twp. voted “to place the five-year, 5.3-mill fire levy on March 8 ballots, although the filing deadline had passed three weeks ago,” according to the article. The debate over fire services funding originates from “a dispute over tax revenues from special districts set up, first by the township and then by Centerville.” Sugarcreek schools and the city of Centerville reached an agreement to split revenues from Cornerstone’s tax increment financing district (TIF), but the city and township have not yet come to an agreement.
