According to unofficial election results from the Clark County Board of Elections, about 67 percent of voters approved the tax renewal. The money is earmarked and can only be used to pay for police activity, New Carlisle Mayor Mike Lowrey said.
New Carlisle doesn’t have its own police force. Instead, it contracts with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to have four deputies strictly patrol New Carlisle. As part of the contract, New Carlisle is responsible for paying the deputy’s salaries, benefits and other expenses.
