Medina Co. proposes county sales tax for schools

Medina Co. attempts to use sales tax for school capital improvements

Medina County is making its bid to become the first county in the state to fund school capital improvements with sales tax money.

The three county commissioners voted 2-1 Tuesday to put at 0.5 percent sales tax on the May 8 ballot.

Commissioner Patricia Geissman said she voted against the issue because she felt the issue should have been placed on the November ballot instead and because the officials were awaiting an opinion from the Ohio Attorney General's office on the sales tax plan.

The opinion, which arrived late Tuesday afternoon, says the county can seek a sales tax to raise money for school capital improvements. But the opinion warned against setting regulations for a board that will oversee the spending of the new sales tax money.

County Commissioners will hold a special meeting at 10 a.m. Thursday to review their decision and the Attorney General's opinion.
