Maumee, Sylvania to Vote on TARTA Sales Tax Plan

(Maumee, OH) Two more communities vote tonight on TARTA’s sales tax proposal. 

City councils in Sylvania and Maumee are scheduled to vote tonight on the half-cent sales tax increase for the transit agency—and there could be a split vote. 

Maumee’s leaders seem content to let voters decide. But some of Sylvania’s elected officials would rather see TARTA wait until next year, when state law would allow a smaller increase of one-tenth of a percent. 

In any event, the bus service needs all seven of its member communities to ratify the switch from a property tax to a sales tax before the plan heads to the November ballot for a public vote. TARTA will have a clearer picture by week’s end: Sylvania township trustees vote tomorrow.
