  • John Guisinger III Very true marc. I will make a concentrated effort NOT to spend large amounts here once in effect. Unfortunately this cannot be avoided if purchasing a vehicle…. Remember when they stuck us with another $5 charge on license plates in the past couple See More
  • Talesa Diane Thomas Sunderland We should have known when it was brought to the table they would pass it let’s see who gets a raise. WOW

  • Richard Painter As a sign of good leaders they should take a twenty five percent pay cut for the same amount of time !
  • Mike Monroe Make sure you take this into consideration. As soon as you drive to Polaris, or Cleveland to buy because you want to get out of this tax increase, you surely spent more money in gas to avoid it, so the GOV still wins. Use common sense here folks. The way to end this isn’t buying elsewhere and hurting you local businesses. VOTE THEM OUT

  • Shawn Johns That’s fine. I’ll just choose not to shop in Richland Co.
  • Phil Sydnor Or like I had the other day, have a preacher by it for you. Now that’s sticking it to the man, or was that me when he went to Sandusky to lie about what he wanted to pay? People are getting everything they deserve here. MORE WILL BE LEAVING I’M SURE TAX WHAT’S LEFT!
  • Phil Sydnor Chris, they will just laugh at you. sad
  • Phil Sydnor Let the County keep hiring Attorneys to rep the Commissioners and Sheriff and you will never see the end of these CONtinued “EMERGENCY” hikes. ORC-309.09 look it up. That’s Bambi’s job! – do it or figure out why we elect or in this case hand pick incompetent lawyers?
  • Mike Skidmore So surprised….
  • Mike Monroe Cbus is 7.5% and Cleveland is 8% so go elsewhere and pay more. If you look at the stats there’s over 50 counties that will be 7.25%, not like they are raising this to make a statement and make richland higher than anyone else. There’s very few of the remaining 30 that are less than 7.25%. I’m not for raising any taxes without a vote by the people, but when they do it as elected officials they are a direct representation of the people. You all most likely voted them in. You want change? Do It at the polls and vote them out.

    • Kristina Nelson I don’t think the point is our rate compared to others. It’s simply raising the tax. There was no vote and one of the treasurers pulled the same crap in Shelby before she left. I’m glad I can say with confidence that I did not vote for many of the people who currently sit on the counsel.

    • Mike Monroe As can I. I said I don’t agree with it, especially since it only comes up with half if the proposed deficits, but yet they aren’t making any cuts, matter of fact they hired more officers and such. Makes no sense to me.

  • Charles Cooke Jr. Wayne county here I come. Richland county crooks!. They need to budget like everyone else v does!
  • Phil Sydnor The issue is not the tax itself, its the 3 Million they are taking out of an already bleak economy. The reason having to raise is to get back some of that REFUND money folks are getting because their bosses don’t pay a living wage. Thus why funding is getting cut! Its a shell game, one I would rather play under better circumstances. Like in a general area where folks get paid better with little government subsidy in the way of refunds. Refunds of which net more coming back than goes in. Want to complain, complain about a fair tax?

  • Memory Renee’ Pauley Live within THEIR means!! They all want raises and we have to give them to them…who cares if we can’t feed our own as long as they can!!!
  • Rachel Frietchen Stephens Out of 88 counties there are 21 or 22 that have lower tax rates (Ohio Departmet of Taxation). Most counties around Richland County are the same or higher. What most people do not know is that the state keeps 5.75% of what is collected in sales taxes which is much more then local government receives. Also, the State mandates programs and use to support them monetarily but the percentage that the State pays vs. what the local governments pay for these programs have dropped dramaticaly. Maybe that is why the State has a rainy day fund and most local goverments do not.

  • Jon Henry I didn’t get a raise and probably never will so I guess those ……. can just come take more money from me and carelessly spend it as they do. They put extra on our license plates to be able to fix the roads and I sure don’t see all that happening either. Now due to these crappie roads around here my front alignment is out again and my tires are wearing out because of it and now they want to take more. WOW where do they get off doing this? Oh I know they don’t have to pay to fix their cars since they drive county owned vehicles. AND WE GET THE TURN AGAIN.

  • Brenda Vaughn Is anyone truly surprised? Can’t vote them out cause folks like the republican logic too much! They enjoy the beating the republicans give us on a daily. Suck it up folks, this is what the majority voted for!! Proud of yourselves now?
  • Brenda Vaughn BTW Ashland County is 15 mins east. They could use the economic boost.
  • J.f. Kovinchick Vote all of em out next election
  • Ben Williams Well all know they are padding their pockets with more money. Lord knows they won’t use the money to fix the roads.
    • Phil Sydnor Yes, the County used pot hole filling machine for cracks on Lex Springmill stretch between Marion and Millsboro, it’s now a washboard – thanks for such a great job – (sarcasm)
