City of Maumee Adopts an Ordinance in Support of Lucas County Commissioners Joining TARTA


Maumee, Ohio, July 7, 2021 — Yesterday evening, Maumee City Council approved an ordinance to support the Lucas County Board of Commissioners joining TARTA (Toledo Regional Transit Authority) as a member—without a time limit.

The City of Maumee recommends:


·   Any current ad valoreum property tax funding for TARTA be included on the ballot issue and be submitted for repeal as soon as legally possible (repealing the two property taxes currently levied) and that a sales and use tax be levied at a rate which complies with all existing laws of the City of Maumee, the State of Ohio, and the United States.


·   The Municipal Clerk of Maumee will present the ordinance to the Board of Trustees of TARTA so that they may adopt a resolution to submit to the electors of TARTA (the question of including Lucas County in TARTA and levying a sales and use tax of up to .5% and repealing the two property taxes currently levied by TARTA).


·   That equal representation on the Board of Trustees of TARTA, of all units of government and communities served, both current and new, as one member each. No local governmental jurisdiction shall have more than one appointment of a representative on the TARTA Board of Trustees.


“The City of Maumee believes that every city, and our new township partners whose constituents must pay for TARTA service, should have an equal vote and that the proposed ballot initiative should be ready for the November ballot,” stated Richard Carr, Mayor, City of Maumee.


Current member communities are: The City of Toledo, the City of Maumee, the City of Sylvania, the City of Rossford, the Village of Ottawa Hills, the City of Waterville and the Township of Sylvania.
