Washington Court House Council Opposes State, Plans for Salt

At last night's council meeting, the City of Washington Court House unanimously voted to put on second reading a resolution to oppose the State of Ohio collecting local taxes and then distributing those taxes back to the local government.

When asked why the city is opposing this action, City Manager Joe Denen said the state should take care of its own tax money, not the cities'. 

A resolution was put on first reading that authorizes City manager Joe Denen to enter into an Agreement with ODOT for the purchase of Bulk Highway Rock salt.

When asked about the salt on hand the city manager said they are in good shape, but should be ready in case they need more. 

He explained purchasing salt now is so important because by the time you know you need more in late winter, you're out of luck. 

Council meets next on Monday May 14th at Belle Aire Elementary School at 8:30am. This is in place of council's regular day and time, Wednesday May 23rd.
