STOP THE LIES
LOWER YOUR TAXES
DISSOLVE NEW ROME
It seems someone is spreading rumors
in New Rome, a scare tactic if you will, that property taxes would go up
if the vote to dissolve New Rome succeeds next month. This is a lie.
In fact, taxes would decrease if New Rome ceases to exists. Services
would likely increase. How's that for a bargain from government?
New Rome's village tax rate is 1.20. This is actually quite a bargain
in Franklin County. Only Reynoldsburg, Harrisburg, Urbancrest and Marble
Cliff have lower city rates. Valleyview's is a staggering 24.53, more
than any other municipality. The total property tax rate in New Rome
is 89.48 vs 88.28 in Prairie Township due to the extra village tax.
