Bexley City Income Tax Increase (November 2011)
This measure was approved
- YES 2,915 (53.33%)
- NO 2,551 (46.67%)
This measure sought to increase the current income tax rate in the city to a rate of 2.5 percent in order to help pay for general operational and maintenance costs as well as capital improvements in the city. City officials expect further cuts from state funds and saw this as the best option to help support the expected deficit. The city no longer receives an estate tax in the city, so this will be the only means to help pay for city needs. City officials already planned to cut programs and services, but were hopeful that this measure will mean less cuts than would be needed if this measure had not been approved.
