Public hearing on Mahoning County sales tax at 10:30 a.m. today

Public hearing on Mahoning County sales tax at 10:30 a.m. today


The Mahoning County Commissioners will conduct a public hearing at 10:30 a.m. today in their county courthouse basement meeting room concerning their proposals to renew a 0.50-percent sales tax continuously and to enact a new 0.25-percent, five-year sales tax; both will be on the May 6 ballot.

The new tax would produce $7.75 million in new annual revenue, which the commissioners say is needed to compensate for losses in recent years in investment income, state funding and income from housing federal prisoners in the county jail.

The tax hearing will follow the commissioners’ first regular meeting of 2014, which will begin at 10 a.m.

Erplane... because they really do not care what the taxpayer has to say. They are simply going through the motions and will place the tax on the ballot until it passes. VOTE NO and let them go back to the state for more money.

Vote no and let them squirm and explain where they are spending so much money. Like on their own wages.
