Dear Loveland Magazine Readers,
The 25% increase to the Loveland earnings tax on the ballot in November is permanent. Most voted taxes such as for schools, fire/ems and health/social services expire after a certain number of years. Then the public body goes back to the electors seeking a renewal or increase. Voters may then choose to accept or reject the tax. That is a means of holding public officials accountable to you.
City Council decided to seek an increase that is perpetual. Thus I didn’t vote to put it on the ballot.
Member of Council
City of Loveland
