Election Results: Fostoria Property Tax Levy Passes

11/8/17 – 5:08 A.M.

A property tax levy in Fostoria passed by just 50 votes Tuesday. The 6-mill property tax is part of a fiscal recovery plan outlined for the city. Officials expect the measure to generate around $3.5 million for the general fund by 2022. The city plans to use the money to pay for safety services.

Mayor Eric Keckler tells the Review-Times, “This was big for the community and what we were going to look like over the next five years or so.”

Now that the levy has passed, Fostoria plans to hire three more firefighters.
