A study headed up by the state auditor’s office has determined that a joint fire district that would include the city of Medina, Medina Township and Montville Township simply isn’t feasible. The study has been ongoing for more than a year, and was presented to a committee that was looking to create the fire district, hoping it would lower costs for all three municipalities. The results of the study showed, however, that the fire district would cost more for residents of the two townships, than it would the city residents, due to housing values. The lowest cost scenario in the study would cost roughly $1.8 million, more than the three paid combined in 2018.
