HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) – Huber Heights voters had two major decisions to make Tuesday night.
One, the mayor himself wasn’t so sure about. The city asked voters to pass a .25 percent income tax increase to support police, fire and public safety.
Mayor Tom McMasters said in a blog that he was unsure about voting on the income tax increase. He questioned the wording, although on Election Day, he told 2 NEWS he supports residents voicing their opinions at the ballot box.
The income tax levy was passed by a big margin, 56% FOR, 44% AGAINST.
Residents were also asked to pass a 6.95 mill additional levy for the school district for current expenses. The district’s last five levy attempts failed, so school leaders hope cuts already made are enough to convince voters to pass it.
The levy failed by a margin of 43% FOR and 57% AGAINST.
