In 2020, the City of Twinsburg received a State Performance Audit. In the audit, the State advised that the fire department is understaffed based on the call volume for the City of Twinsburg. The City of Twinsburg has committed to an increase in Fire Department staff.
With the approval of the levy, there will be dedicated money for equipment and to help replace our aging fleet of vehicles.
