OHIO – Greene County Considers Sales Tax Increase To Fund New Jail


People who go to Greene County’s popular shopping destinations may pay a little more on merchandise next year, providing revenue that would fund a new 500-bed jail facility.

Commissioners are mulling whether to ask voters to approve the issue on the March ballot — A .25% sales tax increase over a multi-year period to pay for the estimated $60 million project.

Residents can weigh-in on the proposal at a public hearing scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Greene County Board of Commission’s meeting room, 35 Greene St., Xenia.
