Mifflin Township Police Chief Tammy Phillips, along with representatives from the Mifflin Township Board of Trustees, will be available to meet with residents and answer questions they may have regarding the upcoming police levy on the ballot on Tuesday, May 4.
Township representatives will hold the informal meet-and-greet from 6 – 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 27 in the parking lot of Mifflin Township Fire Station 132, located at 2459 Agler Rd.
Voters will decide on Tues., May 4 whether to approve a replacement of the current 2-mill levy that expires at the end of this year (2021). The permanent levy of 2 mills supports the operation of the Mifflin Township Police Department and would pick up where the current levy ends. Passage of a permanent levy eliminates the need to vote on a replacement every five years and provides approximately $75,000 toward the police budget.
