Pro and Con Arguments For and Against the Measure
This 2-mill property tax levy is a renewal and will not raise taxes for property owners in Maple Heights. The levy pays salaries for firefighters and helps to maintain fire trucks and stations.
Failure of this renewal levy would lower taxes slightly in 2019. But it may also result in cuts to the city's ability to fight fires.
