The Village of Dresden's council voted to place a 2 mill continuous street levy on the November 6, 2018 ballot. The levy is to help replace reduced funding for our street department. The dump truck and backhoe currently being used need to be replaced and the village also needs a source of funding to do some paving as the paving monies have been reduced by 50% and the grant funding has become much more competitive and harder to obtain. VOTE YES NOVEMBER 6, 2018

The Village of Dresden's Council has voted to accept the bid from Finley Fire Equipment to provide us with a new tanker truck. This was made possible through a grant of $300,000.00. Good job Chief Wolford and staff!

The Village of Dresden had filed for the competetive CDBG, Community Development Block Grant , funding for a street paving project with the Muskingum County Commissioners. We tied for top score with Newton Township but the commissioners opted to go with Newton Township as their project affected 99 homes and ours only 89 homes. We are currently working with the folks from OMEGA (Ohio Mid-Eastern Government Association) to apply for an OPWC (Ohio Public Works Commission) grant for the same paving project as mentioned above.
