CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Centerville released a statement Friday explaining they are “very disappointed in the Sugarcreek Township government action.”
The city also said removing fire service is, “an amazingly irresponsible act.”
Centerville previously agreed to provide the township $4.4 million over 30 years to support fire and emergency services to the Cornerstone Development.
Thursday Sugarcreek announced plans for a new fire district that excluded the Cornerstone development. Sugarcreek Township administrator Barry Tiffany said the 911 call log for the has doubled since the opening of stores in the development.
Friday’s statement from Centerville went as far to call the new plan “illegal and unethical.”
