(Maumee, OH) The TARTA tax vote is splitting community leaders.
Sylvania Township Trustees will be the next community to vote on TARTA'S proposal to switch its funding source from a property tax to a sales tax. That means a half-cent sales tax increase in Lucas County, raising $30 million per year for operations.
Trustees will vote on the plan during a regular meeting which starts at 5 p.m.
Maumee City Council voted 4-to-3 to approve the plan last night, while a split vote 3-to-3 in Sylvania means the proposal will slow down, with a final decision expected sometime next week.
But Sylvania's mayor has indicated he'll break that tie vote in favor of TARTA and let voters decide in November.
