West Carrollton city officials are considering a tax levy to help pay for an in-house emergency dispatch center.

The city of West Carrollton is considering changes to its dispatching service. Officials are concerned the city is getting priced out of offering an in-house emergency call center.

If the city wants to run its own operation next year, officials are expecting it’ll cost around $800,000. City Manager Brad Townsend says that isn’t feasible without residents paying a little extra. Voters could be asked to approve a levy in May at the earliest.

Work will get underway soon on a site for the Dayton-area’s first Costco store after Oberer Realty closed a deal Monday to make Costco the anchor tenant in its Cornerstone development. The development in Centerville, just off I-675, has been around for five years, but most tenants for the site are still in negotiations and haven’t been announced.

George Oberer, Oberer Companies CEO, says even though Cornerstone is just beginning to fill up, he’s not worried about keeping the development occupied.
