CELINA - City voters in November will decided whether to repeal a half-percent income tax that pays for police and fire expenses and replace it with the tax of the same rate that would also fund street repairs.
City council members on Monday night passed the final reading of a resolution to place the measure on the November ballot. If approved, the new levy would begin Jan. 1 and expire in seven years. The current levy is set to expire in 2018. [More]
