Similar to the State's actions of tax reform, Medina County is the first Ohio County to address how the residents finance the capital projects in their school districts. The commissioners voted to use a .5 % of the alloted 2% sales tax to finance the building and maintenance needs of the Medina County Schools. The tax which does not increase the taxes of our property owners but draws from purchases made in the county has provided in its initial distribution to the districts. With the addition of the .5% increase to the sales tax, only 4 counties of Ohio's 88 have a lesser tax than Medina County's 6.5%.
In 2004 the city of Medina initiated a municipal income tax of 1.25%. Through strategic planning, efficiency studies, and a thorough budgeting process the city has remained fiscally strong during the current economic conditions.
