County Responds to Dayton Daily News Article

In response to the Dayton Daily News article entitled, “County Might Seek Tax Increase,” Montgomery County would like to clarify the inaccurate statement that an increase in the Human Services Levy is under consideration.

No tax increase is under consideration,” said Montgomery County Commission President Debbie Lieberman.  “We have an exceptional process where our citizen committee looks at the needs of our community and makes a recommendation on the necessary level of millage.” 

The next time Montgomery County voters could be asked to support the Human Services Levy will be in November 2014 when Levy A will expire.  “When that time comes, as is customary, the Human Services Levy Council and the County Commissioners, will examine the need for services, the millage amount and the impact on Montgomery County taxpayers,” added Commissioner Judy Dodge.

“There is no question that the human service delivery system will be challenged by the proposed state budget cuts,” said Commissioner Dan Foley.  “However, Montgomery County’s combined human services levy system positions the county well to address this challenge and we look forward to working with the Human Services Levy Council and our county agencies to ensure that our county’s most vulnerable citizens continue to receive the services they need.”

The County Commissioners will comment further on this issue at the Tuesday, April 12th 1:30 p.m. Commission meeting on the 10th floor of the County Administration Building, 451 West Third Street in Dayton.
