Income Tax Increase to be on November Ballot

July 11, 2017

Akron voters will decide the fate of a proposed 1/4 percent income tax increase when they vote in the November 7 election. Council unanimously approved placing the proposed tax increase on the ballot. Council also approved the 2017 Consolidated Action Plan, which allocates $7 million next year to assist low income and homeless citizens with housing needs, and it approved an ordinance authorizing the police to purchase enough tasers to equip every patrol officer.
