Delaware County, Liberty Township Team Up To Refinance YMCA

6 Feb , 2021  

Special to 1808Delaware

Delaware County Treasurer Michael Ringle announced on February 2 that his office will purchase $2.4 million in bonds that will enable Liberty Township to refinance the YMCA.

“This is truly a win-win proposition for both sides,” Ringle said. “By purchasing the bonds, we can offer Liberty Township a lower interest rate than they can obtain on the open market. These bonds will save taxpayers more than $120,000 in interest payments over the life of the bonds. At the same time, all Delaware County taxpayers will benefit as the interest payments are higher than what’s available to us on the open market.” More…

A New Day: Groundbreaking Held For New Liberty Township Library Branch

22 Nov , 2020  

The Delaware County District Library broke ground this past week on the newest facility to be added to the library system, the Liberty Branch Library.

Located at 7468 Steitz Road in Powell, the building will be the fifth brick-and-mortar location for DCDL, with other buildings in Delaware, Ostrander, Orange Township, and downtown Powell. “Breaking ground on the Liberty Branch Library is the next step in a process that has been community-driven from the beginning,” said Deputy Director Molly Meyers LaBadie. “From the overwhelming passage of the Library’s November 2018 levy renewal request, to community forums, website feedback, and staff input, the branch doesn’t have a corner that hasn’t been looked at with residents and users in mind.”

The groundbreaking ceremony took place at 2:00 p.m. with just ten individuals in attendance, in order to comply with current public health orders pertaining to COVID-19. The event was also streamed live to the Library’s Facebook page and broadcast on televisions in each of the Library’s four locations for staff and users within the Library to view. More…
