Mahoning County, OH

Type: Sales Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Passed, 55% - 45%

The sales tax measure that failed in March will be back on the ballot in November. Without its approval the transportation system will likely shut down. If the sales tax is approved, it would raise about $7 million annually for WRTA. The agency would then eliminate the Youngstown levies that currently fund the system.
