CW Schools’ finances

good; but levy likely

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

The five-year financial forecast for

Canal Winchester Schools paints a positive

picture, along with the hope that voters

will renew an emergency levy that expires

at the end of next year.

“This levy is vital to the financial stability

of the district,” said Superintendent

Jim Sotlar during an Oct. 15 Canal

Winchester Board of Education meeting.

According to district CFO Nick Roberts,

from 2014-18, there was significant growth

in state funding projections. Currently,

state funding accounts for 43 percent of

district revenue, with more than 50 percent

coming from personal and property


“Revenue growth has been strong the

past five years, averaging 4.92 percent per

year” said Roberts. “This growth has been

fueled by significant state funding increases.

State funding is anticipated to continue

to grow through the end of the projection

assuming a continuation of the current formula.”

In 2023, state funding is projected to

account for nearly 50 percent of all revenue.

Income tax revenue climbs from a little

over 10 percent this year to 12.5 percent

five years from now.

“Income tax collections supply approximately

10.5 percent of the district’s overall

operational revenue. Income tax growth

has been strong over the last five-year period

and has exceeded state and national

trends following the 2008 great recession,”

said Roberts. “While income tax growth

was slightly less robust in fiscal year 2016,

growth rebounded in fiscal year 2017 and

fiscal year 2018 resulting in an overall

annual growth rate of over 5.7 percent

since 2014.The forecast assumes future

income tax growth to remain strong at

more than a three percent annual growth


Real estate revenue for 2018 accounted

for 31.9 percent of district revenue.

“After two straight negative reappraisal

cycles in Franklin County, real estate

property values resumed growth in the

2017 valuation update,” said Roberts.

“Real estate property values are expected

to maintain steady growth–due to both

inflationary adjustments and new construction

through the forecasted period.”

In 2019, real estate tax revenue is projected

to bring in $14.1 million. If the levy

is renewed, revenue grows to $15.1 million

in 2023.

New construction not only brings additional

revenue, it also translates to growth

in student numbers. Roberts said there

was an unusual surge in new student

enrollment. He said the typical trend was

in the 80 student range, but this year, the

number nearly doubled with 154 new students.

CW plans to renew contract with county sheriff

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

For the city of Canal Winchester, police

protection provided by a contract with the

Fairfield County Sheriff is working well

enough to renew the agreement for another

three years.

An ordinance authorizing Mayor Mike

Ebert to enter into a contract with the sheriff’s

department started winding its way

through the approval process following

introduction of an ordinance during a

Canal Winchester City Council work session

on Oct. 15.

Finance Director Amanda Jackson said,

The Eastside Messenger will alter

its publication schedule for the upcoming

holiday season. The Messenger will

publish print editions of the newspaper

that will be delivered to your home on

three consecutive Sundays on Oct. 21,

Oct. 28, and Nov. 4. The print publication

and delivery dates for the remainder

of 2018 are: Nov. 18, Dec. 2, and

Dec. 16. Thank you for reading the


other than the cost, little has changed since

the city first entered into an agreement

with Fairfield County.

And while the contract contains a provision

for purchase of a new vehicle every

year, Jackson said it will be a little costlier,

initially, for the city since equipment used

in the current Dodge Chargers cannot be

transferred to newer utility style vehicles.

The current city contract with the county,

which expires at the end of December, is

approximately $1.1 million a year. The new

contract, if approved, is $1.165 million.

“It’s about a six percent increase,” said

Jackson. “Some of it is due to wages and

upping it to include four vehicles.”

Leaf pick-up in CW

The city of Canal Winchester will conduct

annual curbside leaf collection

through Dec. 14. To avoid water backup in

the event of rain, leaf piles must be placed

behind the curb along the street. Residents

are reminded that leaf piles may contain

leaves only, as sticks, grass trimmings and

other yard waste can cause damage to leaf

collection equipment. Regular yard waste

will continue to be picked up by Waste

Management during scheduled trash collection.City

crews follow specific routes

covering all city streets, as weather permits,

and cannot accept individual leaf

pick up requests.

The approximate replacement cost per

vehicle is $40,000–which includes equipment–and

the monthly cost of the agreement

is $101,801.

According to the contract, the sheriff

agrees to fund 11 deputies providing 376

hours per week of police protection. Two

deputy sheriffs are on duty 24 hours a day,

seven days a week with a third deputy

sheriff working a shift mutually agreed

upon in writing by the mayor and the sheriff.

The sheriff also agrees to fund one fulltime

sergeant providing 40 hours per week

of supervision overseeing deputy sheriffs

and assign one full-time dispatcher to the

The city of Canal Winchester is accepting

applications for its 2019 Transient

Occupancy Tax Grant program.

The grant program is open to non-profits

or private organizations located within

the city of Canal Winchester to help fund

projects that will enhance Canal

Winchester for residents and/or visitors to

the community.

Grants are funded with the hotel/motel

tax revenue collected by the city of Canal


Canal Winchester has levied a 6 percent

transient occupancy tax that is imposed

when lodging is furnished to transient

guests by a hotel, motel or similar business.

One half (3 percent) of this tax is contributed

to Destination: Canal Winchester,

the designated visitors and convention

bureau for Canal Winchester.

“Not sure if it was homes being sold,”

Roberts said. “We’ll have to see if it will be

a trend. We will have to keep an eye on


Addressing growth not only puts a

strain on space, it also dictates the need for

staff, Employee salaries and benefits are

the biggest piece of the expenditure pie,

accounting for three-quarters of the district’s

cost in educating children.

In 2018, the district spent $29.9 million

for salaries and benefits. In 2023, the

amount is projected to cost the district

$40.2 million.

“We have done a nice job in controlling

benefits (cost),” said Roberts. “A lot of that

is the unknown in health insurance. We’re

funding exactly what our claims are.”

Despite enrollment growth from 2013 to

2015, the district reduced staff during the

period. Roberts said the staffing reductions

helped the district remain financially stable

during an economically challenging

period. From 2016 through 2018, some


Potential increases in the annual payment

are based upon a combination of costs

incurred by the sheriff for services, including

salaries, retirement pensions and

workers compensation for personnel

assigned to Canal Winchester; training;

equipment, gasoline and supplies; and


Additional deputies may be necessary

during the life of the contract and when

mutually agreed upon in writing, they may

be added to any shift–which was done earlier

this year. The city agrees to cover the

costs of salaries, benefits, and personnel

related taxes for additional personnel.

Tax grant applications sought

Applications due by Nov. 30

The second half of the tax has been designated

by city council to fund the annual

Bed Tax Grant Program.

Grant applications will be competitively

reviewed and awards will be made to those

projects meeting all requirements and the

intent of the program.

Grant applications are available on the

city’s website and at the Canal Winchester

Municipal Building, 36 S. High St., Canal

Winchester, OH 43110.

Completed applications must be submitted

in person or by mail to the attention of

the finance director at the above address

no later than Nov. 30.

City council will make award determinations

in December.

Award checks will be drawn in early

2019 and all awards must be used within

the 2019 calendar year.

Jackson, finance director, at 614-837-6937

staff positions were restored.

“Since emerging from the financial crisis

in stable financial condition, the district

has cautiously added staff targeted to

improve student performance,” said

Roberts. “In fiscal year 2019, the district

added six additional teaching staff as well

as eight additional para-professional positions.

The good news is that nearly all of

the increased cost of these new positions

was covered by staff turnover. Fiscal year

2020 through fiscal year 2023 assumes the

addition of three professional teaching

staff and five non-certified positions per

year. The district recently negotiated a

three-year agreement with staff covering

fiscal years 2019-21.”

The agreement calls for 2.5 percent base

wage increases each year of the agreement.

Sotlar expects to present a resolution of

necessity to the board in November to

place the levy back on the ballot in 2019.

“This levy is a renewal,” said Sotlar.

“We’re not asking for new money.”

“First Man” is moving and engaging

If you have yet to see “First Man” but

are under the impression that it is a sweeping

epic about the 1960s space race

between the United States and the Soviet

Union, allow me to dispel that notion: This

movie is nothing like that.

While that may be a deterrent for those

who were hoping for a theatrical adaptation

regarding this topic in the vein of a

Michael Bay film, it shouldn’t make you

dismiss it outright based on that alone.

“First Man” is a great film — a terrific

character study about an introverted man

thrust into the national spotlight while

struggling with repressed grief. It is quiet,

contemplative, at times breathtaking and

at times remarkably dull. It isn’t perfect,

and I’m not certain I would watch it again,

but it made me appreciate what it strived

to do nonetheless.

It begins in 1961 with civilian pilot Neil

Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) testing the

outer limits of the X-15. His experience in

the soon to be grounded flights are visually

inspired and absolutely terrifying to watch.

A word of warning though: if you suffer

from bouts of motion sickness, you may

need to look away during the opening

sequence, as well as a few others throughout.

Just as the Ohio native is climbing the

ranks in his professional life, his personal

life is being met with devastation as he and

his wife Janet (Claire Foy) learn of the

tumor growing in their young daughter’s

brain. Working as hard as he does in and

While it is definitely not an

action-packed thriller, “First Man”

is an effective and affecting study

of an American icon and his private

journey through grief.

doctors doing experimental treatments to

prolong Karen’s life but little more can be


Being a private person, though the film

slyly posits his reaction as a product of his

generation, Neil buries his grief and

immerses himself in work. Shortly after

this family tragedy, he applies for a position

with NASA Astronaut Group 2 and

relocates his family to Houston for a fresh


In the following years, we see the

advancement of space exploration and the

public’s divided reaction to the space race.

More intimately, we see the toll it takes on

the astronauts, some of whom are killed

trying to reach their dreams, as well as

that of their families. In regards to the

Armstrong’s, we see two young sons trying

to get their father’s attention, a woman

struggling with putting on a happy face for

public documentation, and a man who

becomes obsessed with his work at the

expense of his mental and emotional wellbeing.

Though the film is set more than half a

century ago, it feels all too modern.

As I wandered around the festival grounds at the

recent Apple Butter Day in Groveport I was pleasantly

surprised by something I witnessed near Palm Pond.

Arrayed in the grassy area near the pond were a variety

of old style wooden toys as well as some “hands-on”

work stations where kids could perform old fashioned

tasks. The area was full of happy, smiling kids who

seemed thrilled to tackle the mental and physical challenges

the old style toys and work stations provided.

These toys - which included wooden stilts, wooden

hoops kids could propel along the ground with a stick,

ropes for tug-of-war, as well as other such items - appear

simple at first, but they are actually stimulating to mind

and body. They require one to reason out how to use them

and then physically try them out.

Kids had to figure out how to balance themselves in

order to walk on the stilts. I watched as kids used trial

and error to come up with the best way to wrap one’s

hands and arms on the stilt uprights in order to walk.

The smiles on their faces were broad and bright when

they accomplished taking several steps while on the


The tug-of-war ropes required both strength, balance,

and strategy. There were times when a smaller kid

defeated a larger opponent because the smaller competitor

had deciphered how proper balance and timing

worked in their favor.

Rolling the wooden hoops required speed, agility, coordination,

and a knowledge of how best to apply the stick

times, it feels draggy

despite the emotional

punches this movie


But when it comes time for the landing,

however, the suspense, wonder, visualization,

pride and sadness make you almost

forget how long it took to get there.

While it is definitely not an actionpacked

thriller, “First Man” is an effective

and affecting study of an American icon

and his private journey through grief.

Had it been billed that way, I probably

wouldn’t have seen people walking out of

the theaters due to boredom, but I felt that

was their loss.

Though admittedly boring at points, this

is a wonderfully moving film that is one of

the better acted films this year and one of

the most visually engaging.

There were also a series of work

Adults often lament how kids are always looking

deeply into the screens of their smartphones or computer

tablets (though adults do this, too) albeit with the grudging

knowledge the technical skills kids learn using their

high tech phones and computers are important in the

But it was clear to me on this past Apple Butter Day

that, when presented the opportunity to tackle fun mental

and physical challenges that are new to them, even

when those challenges come from another era, the kids

quickly and happily embraced the joy of it and rose to the

occasion. There is something so wonderfully human

about that.

Taking a look at State Issue 1

Proposed state constitutional

amendment will appear on

Nov. 6 ballot

By Christine Bryant

Staff Writer

A controversial ballot initiative this November

would reform Ohio’s criminal justice system, offering

more opportunities for treatment rather than prison


It’s a positive step for those who want reform, especially

in the middle of an opioid epidemic. But opponents

warn those who should be behind bars instead

would be on the streets sooner, and argue the initiative

is misguided.

Under the proposed constitutional amendment,

known as State Issue 1, the sentences of incarcerated

individuals - except those convicted of murder, rape or

child molestation - would be reduced by up to 25 percent

if the individual participates in rehabilitative,

work or educational programming.

The amendment also would mandate that criminal

offenses of obtaining, possessing or using any drug,

such as fentanyl, heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine,

LSD and other controlled substances, be classified as a

misdemeanor, rather than a felony.

If adopted, the amendment also:

•Prohibits jail time as a sentence for obtaining, possessing

or using controlled substances until an individual’s

third offense within 24 months;

•Allows an individual convicted of obtaining, possessing

or using a drug prior to the effective date of the

amendment to ask a court to reduce the conviction to a


•Requires any available funding, based on projected

savings, to be applied to state-administered rehabilitation

programs and crime victim funds; and

•Requires a graduated series of responses, such as

community service, drug treatment or jail time, for

minor non-criminal probation violations.

Amy Hanauer, executive director of Policy Matters

Ohio, says the organization conducted three research

projects on Issue 1 and found, if approved, the measure

will have big benefits for Ohio.

“Ohio’s prison population has tripled since 1980,

and our prisons are at 132 percent of capacity,” she

said. “We lock up a higher share than all but 13 other

states, and we have more of our people on probation

than all but two other states.”

By redirecting people when their worst offenses are

possession or probation violation, she says, benefits

include reduced prison populations, more treatment

and lower rates of overdose and addiction.

“When we lock people up just for addiction, it can

really derail their lives,” Hanauer said. “They are eight

times more likely to die of an overdose when they first

get out of prison than other people with addiction are.

They are locked out of at least one in four Ohio jobs

after serving time, which makes it harder to stay on

the straight and narrow.”

Though well intended, Issue 1 is misguided, says

Louis Tobin, executive director of the Ohio Prosecuting

Attorneys Association.

“The reality is that it will make Ohio’s opiate crisis

worse,” he said. “For many addicts, courts are the only

thing that get them into treatment and promote recovery.

Issue 1 takes away the stick - incarceration - that

courts use to do this.”

Voters do not need to look any farther than West

Virginia, he says, which has more overdose deaths

than Ohio.

“West Virginia law does what Issue 1 proposes to do

for Ohio,” Tobin said. “It makes drug possession a misdemeanor

with no jail time. Nothing connects addicts

to treatment and they are left on their own to get

sober. It doesn’t work.”

Hanauer, however, says many people want to, but

can’t get into drug treatment in Ohio.

“Addiction is an illness, created in part by bad policies,”

she said. “We need to do things differently in

Ohio, and Issue 1 does that.”

Issue 1 became an initiative after advocates began

to explore how the prison budget did not leave enough

funds for other needs, she said.

“More than 4,800 Ohioans died last year from overdoses

and it’s been climbing each year,” Hanauer said.

“Issue 1 is a promising solution to reduce incarceration,

redirect resources to treating addiction, and get

our communities healthy and safe.”

Tobin, however, says that by creating a constitutional

right for offenders to be released from prison 25

percent early, all inmates have to do is participate in

programming while in prison.

“Participation is something much different than

completion,” he said. “They are not required to complete

the programming or to demonstrate that they are


Tobin is also concerned by who the amendment does

not exclude from being able to participate.

“Issue 1 says that the only exclusions are death sentences,

life without parole, murder, rape and child

molestation,” Tobin said. “This means that human

traffickers, drug traffickers, domestic violence offenders

and child abuse offenders, among many other violent

offenders, will get out of prison early.”

As part of the initiative, funds saved from incarcerating

inmates would be redirected to rehabilitation

programs and crime victim funds. According to Policy

Matters Ohio, it costs an average of $67.84 per inmate

per day, or nearly $25,000 a year. Those figures

include fixed costs, such as facility maintenance.

However, Tobin says the promised savings are a

myth, with the independent Ohio Office of Budget and

Management stating Issue 1 instead could increase

costs to the state and local governments.

“The problem is that Issue 1 adopts a cookie-cutter

approach where everyone found with a certain amount

of drugs is treated the same,” he said.

The wording of the initiative also is problematic, he

says - not differentiating the quantities of drugs in a

person’s possession, nor distinguishing addictive versus

non-addictive drugs.

“As one example, possession of the date rape drug

GHB would be a misdemeanor with no jail time under

Issue 1,” Tobin said. “It is dangerous. Under Issue 1,

there will be no real consequences for having it.”

He said the law also is shortsighted.

“It is intended to deal with our very real opiate crisis,”

Tobin said. “By putting drug laws in our

Constitution, it ignores what might come next.”

In the last few years, the state has gone from experiencing

a pill problem to a heroin problem to a fentanyl


“Now we are starting to see the rise of carfentanil -

100 times stronger than fentanyl,” Tobin said. “Ohio

will not have the flexibility to deal with future crises

because our drug laws will be set in stone.”

Hanauer said, however, passage of Issue 1 would be

an impactful step toward helping families.

“Providing treatment gets people on the path to getting

their lives back together,” she said.

Building a business wardrobe

The transition from college student

or stay-at-home mom to fulltime

professional requires a

number of changes. Those

changes include updating your

wardrobe to give it a more professional

feel. Clothing that's acceptable

for a jaunt to the store or a

night out may

not be appropriate

for the office

Just what constitutes a professional

wardrobe has changed over

the years, and the guidelines for

such attire are no longer as firm

as they once were. But it still behooves

a woman to add some classic,

professional pieces to her

closet. While skirts and pantyhose

may no longer be mandatory,

dressing conservatively and

cleanly in an office environment

is always a safe bet. Many employers

have adopted dress-down

days as perks for their employees.

Although you may be invited to

dress more casually, avoid dressing

for a day at the beach or hanging

around the house. Opt for

trouser-style jeans that are free of

rips and embellishments. If athletic

shoes are allowed, make sure

they are clean and not the pair

you wear while tending to your

garden. Avoid graphic T-shirts

that feature potentially offensive

or suggestive messages. In more

conservative companies, dressing

down may be opting for khakis instead

of suits. It is important to

know the difference.

the eye of hiring managers

tasked with finding worthy candidates

among stacks of applications,

while a poor cover letter

may ensure hiring managers

never even glance at an applicant's

resume.An effective cover

letter should be concise, conveying

an applicant's work history

and goals in a few paragraphs or

less. The following are some additional

ways men and women

can craft effective cover letters:

● Address a specific person when


● State your purpose early on.

● Explain why you are a qualified


● Exhibit some knowledge about

the com

pany to which you're applying.

● Be cordial in your closing

An effective cover letter can go a

long way towardmaking a strong

first impression on a prospective

employer. Men and women

shouldlook at their cover letters

as their first opportunities to

connect with a company and

write their letters accordingly.

Township detective honored

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Madison Township Police Det. Keith Mallory was

honored with the Central Ohio Crimestoppers

September Officer of the Month for his work in helping

close a case involving school threats.

“Thanks to his detective work, we were able to

make an arrest and prosecution,” said Madison

Township Police Chief Gary York during an Oct. 9

presentation to the township trustees.

According to Crimestoppers, on Feb. 27, a social

media post resulted in an investigation that a student

who attends Groveport Madison Middle School North

had posted threatening pictures with guns targeting

students and teachers.

As a result, Groveport Madison School officials

closed all 10 of the district’s school buildings for the

safety of the students and community.

During the investigation, Mallory retrieved a cell

phone from a person of interest and executed a search

warrant. The cell phone was sent to the Columbus

Police Department for a forensic analysis.

Information on the phone showed a connection

between a middle school student and threats posted on

social media.

The student was arrested and interviewed and during

the interview, admitted to posting the threatening

photos as a joke.

The student, who had a prior charge and arrest of

conveying a firearm inside a school building in late

2016, was charged and arrested with inducing panic, a

second degree felony.

Other Madison Township news

•Madison Township Administrator Susan Brobst

said it was back to the drawing board for a new electric

aggregation contract after rates came in much different

than expected.

“We reject these rates and then we’ll go back out

after the election,” Brobst said, adding she hopes to

have revised rates available in December.

•Brobst discussed the possibility of adding another

regular trustee meeting in June and October of next

year due to both months containing five weeks and

changes in the way the township now handles nuisance


Special meetings would still be called as necessary

and if there was no business for the additional regular

June and October meetings, they could be canceled

with proper notification.

•The Madison Township Police Department is providing

an opiate prescription “Drug Drop Box” for the

community. This drop box is located in the lobby of the

Madison Township Police Department, 4567 Madison

Lane, and will be accessible to the public during normal

office hours Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5


Madison Township Police Chief Gary York said the

officers and staff are committed to serving the community

and believe in helping to fight the opiate epidemic.

Any person can walk-in and dispose of new or old pills,

including prescription medications, or any other illegal

substances and place them into this box with no questions

Prescription Drug Take Back Day set for Canal Winchester

On Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the

city of Canal Winchester and the Diley

Ridge Medical Center, in cooperation with

the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Office and

the Drug Enforcement Administration, will

give the public the opportunity to prevent

pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes

of potentially dangerous expired, unused,

and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring

your pills for disposal to the Diley Ridge

Medical Center parking lot at 7911 Diley

Road. (The DEA cannot accept liquids or

needles or sharps, only pills.) The service

is free and anonymous, with no questions

asked. Canal Winchester’s Take-Back

event offers participants a drive-thru setting

to drop off any unwanted prescription


“We’re doing our part to fight the crisis

of addiction seen throughout the country.

We also want to encourage everyone to dispose

of their unused prescriptions responsibly,

not only keeping them out of the

wrong hands, but keeping them out of

water systems, too,” said Canal Winchester

Mayor Michael Ebert.

The Drug Enforcement Administration

reports that Prescription Drug Take-Back

initiatives address a vital public safety and

public health issue. Medicines that languish

in home cabinets are highly susceptible

to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of

prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are

alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental

poisonings and overdoses due to

these drugs. Studies show that a majority

of abused prescription drugs are obtained

from family and friends, including from the

home medicine cabinet.

DEA launched its prescription drug

take back program when both the

Environmental Protection Agency and the

Food and Drug Administration advised the

public that their usual methods for disposing

of unused medicines - flushing them

down the toilet or throwing them in the

trash - posed potential safety and health


In addition to the success of the takeback

initiative, new regulations in effect

over the last several years have made the

disposal of controlled prescription drugs

easier for patients and their caregivers as

many law enforcement agencies, pharmacies,

hospitals and clinics have begun continuous

collection of unused medications.

Days, visit www.rxdrugdropbox.org.

She is so silly and playful all the

having furry friends. She would do

best in a home without children, as

she can be a little rough when playing. Come meet sweet

pets of the week

Petal may only have three

legs but she has all the

spirit of four legs.

Petal came to the county

shelter an unclaimed stray

with a broken femur fracture

which left her in constant

pain as she tried to

use it despite its limitations.

Despite efforts to save her

leg, it had to be amputated.

It has taken Petal a few

weeks after surgery to

adjust to a three-legged

stride and to feel comfortable with being held, with navigating

steps, and with balancing on uneven terrain. She

is now accepting the challenges in front of her with a

desire to conquer instead of retreat. Her new home will

need a fenced yard as leash walking will require some

endurance training.

Her new home will also need a minimum number of steps

as although she can maneuver them, they are an unnecessary

challenge for her that could predispose her to

unnecessary injury and discomfort. Petal would be perfectly

content to be your one and only canine companion

but can co exist as long as her personal space is respected

and she is not expected to share her food or bones.

Petal is up for adoption through the Franklin County Dog

A new look for the Madison Township Police Dept.

By Linda Dillman

Staff Writer

Madison Township Police Chief Gary

York is painting a new picture of law

enforcement for township residents.

With an annual budget of more than

$3.3 million, a staff of 20 and a coverage

area of nearly 41 square miles with a growing

population of 23,509, York had his work

cut out for him when he started work on

Feb. 1.

“The immediate challenge I faced was

beginning the healing process for the officers

and staff. I wanted to reassure them

that I was here for them, and to move the

department forward,” said York.


He felt the most important step was to

gain the trust and respect of the officers

and staff, and reassure them they were


“The department had a history of disciplinary

issues that had taken its toll on the

staff, the union, the administration and the

trustees,”said York. “In order to change the

department, I needed to change its behavior.”

Since his appointment as chief, York

increased patrol coverage to a minimum

staffing level of two officers per shift and

hired four new officers with two more positions

to fill.

He created two new command positions–an

administrative commander and a

patrol commander - purchased outvest carriers,

security holsters and weapon lights

for officers and eliminated one full-time

civilian maintenance position, one parttime

civilian clerical position, and one parttime

law enforcement position.

York selected a second in command, is

addressing building maintenance issues and

taking a close look at cost-cutting measure

for services the police department uses,

eliminated unnecessary expenditures from

the budget and updated the department’s

policy and procedure through Lexipol.

York also helped design a new patch for

police uniforms and created a new look for

the police department building with updated


“One project I was asked to look at–

that was supported by the trustees–was to

take a look at the department's current

police patch and come up with something

that really labeled the department for the

township and the communities we serve,”

said York.

Three and a half months and multiple

drafts later, after seeking input from board

members and staff, a new police patch was

unveiled in early July. Since its inception

in 1972, the department has only had two

other patches.

The original patch consisted of

Cruiser–the Groveport Madison Schools

mascot, an Indian chief for Canal

Winchester and a covered bridge. The second

patch had no attachment to the township

and resembled a Columbus Police

Department patch.

“Trustee (John) Pritchard really was the

driving force behind the new patch and

when I had hit a plateau for ideas for a new

design, he suggested looking at where we

started,” said York. “From that conversation

came our new patch. To me, it’s important

to remember our history, and where

we came from as an agency. Equally

important, was that our new patch was a

reflection of the community that we


York said the new patch accomplishes

all of that.

“It reflects our past, the communities of

Canal Winchester and Groveport and commemorates

the year it all began. With

newer images, brighter colors and retaining

our past, the new patch embodies all

that we are as an agency,” said York. “I’m

proud of this patch and the legacy it

reflects.” (To see the new patch, go to

www.columbusmessenger.com and look
