ACAR Endorses Summit County Issue 12
Today, the Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS® (ACAR) endorsed Issue 12, the proposed 0.25% sales tax increase, on the November 4, 2014, ballot in Summit County.
The ACAR Board of Directors believes that Issue 12 is needed for improvements to Summit County’s safety forces. Issue 12 warrants an endorsement from ACAR because it is:
- Essential to the public radio improvements needed for emergency responses,
- Crucial to repairing the County Jail and other public facilities and systems,
- Will save local municipalities thousands, if not millions, of dollars, and
- The proposed sales tax increase would expire in 10 years with an anticipated minimal impact on Summit County residents.
For these reasons, and because public safety is an asset to any community, including those in Summit County, ACAR is pleased to endorse Issue 12, as it will benefit all of its homeowners, business owners, other residents, and guests.
