Circleville Council Committee Forwards Legislation for Tax Increase

Circleville Council will soon vote on floating an income tax increase for safety services in November.

Finance Committee chair Barry Keller said everyone regrouped after discussions of a special election for a tax levy were called off in the spring. Union members worked with administration to plan and support another effort for this fall's election.

He said an additional 1/2% income tax, on top of the current two percent, would supplement funding with $1.2 to 1.5 million, and bring staffing back to acceptable levels. Council must pass it by August 7th.

Keller said voters will learn much more in the campaign for it - and that this is absolutely better planned out than the spring attempt.

Hear the much more in the interview.
