Ottawa income tax request fails


First Posted: 11/8/2011

OTTAWA - Ottawa's request to increase its income tax by 0.65 percentage points failed in the Putnam County village tonight.

The issue failed with 70.8 percent of voters saying no, 922-382.

Ottawa already has a 1 percent income tax, and the request would've changed the rate to 1.65 percent for current expenses.
