The phone bank will be held on Sunday, March 17 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at a business in downtown Perrysburg. All supplies and training will be provided. Door-to-Door volunteers will meet on Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at a committee member’s home, where they will receive walk lists and training.
Without this levy’s passage on May 7, there will be no public transportation for seniors or people living with disabilities in Perrysburg. The 5-year, 0.8 mill levy will cost the owner of a $200,000 home about $4 per month and will provide a dial-a-ride service for a fee for residents to travel throughout the city.
“The best part of this levy is that it will keep Perrysburg stable by enabling residents to stay in their homes longer and age with independence and dignity,” stated Go Perrysburg Committee Chair Jack Hoeflinger. “They won’t have to ask friends and family members to take off work to take them to healthcare and other necessary appointments.”
Details of the Dial-A-Ride Service:
- Initial hours of service will be: Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Scheduling flexibility will be available based on overall system utilization.
- The fee will be $1 for each ride.
- The transportation plan includes rides to any location within Perrysburg & connection service to and from Toledo at the Maumee Municipal Building & Rossford Meijer store.
- Rides scheduled 24 hours in advance will receive priority.
