The four northwest townships in Wexford county (Antioch, Hanover, Springville, and Wexford) are joining together to form an Emergency Services Authority. Across the nation communities are struggling to cover the costs of their fire and EMS services. As such, these 4 communities have come together to pool their funding and form a joint Emergency Services Authority Board.
This will be a municipal board run by representatives from each township that can apply for additional grants and funding. There will be no change in the township millage/taxes as a result of forming this new entity.
Please see the full Articles of Incorporation for details about the authority. Approving the Articles of Incorporation is step #1 - there is much more to do!
We will establish a website and/or Facebook page specifically for the Authority and to recognize the efforts of our first responders who we greatly appreciate!
