SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – Salem City Council is meeting Tuesday night after taking up one big item in committee last week.
It’s trying to decide whether to go to voters and put a new income tax issue on the ballot this fall. It’s a permanent, quarter-percent income tax increase, that would go exclusively to infrastructure needs, things like: streets, sidewalks, curbs, lighting and storm sewers.
Council is divided about whether the tax should be permanent or five years.
A council committee voted 3-2 last week to send the issue to the whole council for a vote.
