The Dayton City Commission will discuss the earnings tax proposal on Tuesday, September 6, at 10:00 a.m., at McIntosh Park (corner of Edwin C. Moses and Riverside Blvd.) McIntosh Park is one of the City facilities that would receive improvements funded by the income tax proposal.
The 8-year temporary earnings tax proposal would fund public safety improvements, fund a significant increase in residential street paving, fund park improvements and enhancements to maintenance of public spaces and vacant lots, and fund access to universal high-quality pre-school for four year-olds in the City of Dayton.
The Dayton City Commission voted on July 13, 2016, to place this proposal on the November 2016 General Election ballot. Early voting on the issue begins on October 12th.
This 0.25 percent increase in the earnings tax, if passed in the November elections would make the city’s tax rate one of the highest in the state. If you’d like to talk to the commissioners about this tax, you can show up at the park on Tuesday at 10am, right after a holiday weekend.
