City of Hartville Asking Citizens To Swap Property Tax With Sales Tax
Citizens in Hartville in November’s election will decide how the city collects general revenue and funds city services. Currently the city collects both a 1% sales tax and collects a property tax levy. If the citizens approve an issue on the November ballot, the city will no longer collect the property tax levy and increase the city sales tax to 2%. Overall the city would see revenues increase by $50-thousand dollars, which is approximately the cost to operate the city public safety services, including fire and police.
