TARTA Announces Funding Plan That Would Drop Property Tax Levy

TOLEDO, Ohio - The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority is proposing a change in the way it is funded.

The TARTA Board of Trustees passed a resolution Thursday morning that would eliminate TARTA's current property tax levies and collect a 0.5% sales tax throughout Lucas County and Rossford in its place. 

Two-thirds of the funds collected would fund TARTA operations, and one-third would be distributed among communities for transportation-related expenses. 

It is expected that the County and each existing TARTA member community will discuss this issue and vote on a resolution in the coming months, before the issue is placed on the ballot this November.
