Sandusky County eyeing tax for EMS operations

FREMONT - A measure passed by the Ohio General Assembly should clear the way for Sandusky County to put a sales tax for EMS operations on the November ballot.

State Rep. Jeff Wagner (R., Sycamore), who sponsored the measure in the Ohio House, said it would allow counties to levy a 0.25 percent sales tax that could be set aside solely for emergency medical services.

Dan Liskai, president of the Sandusky County commissioners, said passage last week would allow him and his colleagues to proceed with plans to put a tax on the November ballot.
