Licking County Township Votes To Create Fire District

Union Township trustees last night approved the formation of a fire district to help shorten response times. 

The vote would end contracts for EMS services with Hebron and Granville.  Supporters say it will solve logistical problems created by the locations of the Granville and Hebron fire stations.  Opponents say the new district will result in a tax increase, and current response times are acceptable.
