Two weeks after a number of residents voiced their opposition to the city’s plan to increase three of its tax rates to the maximum levels, the Vandalia City Council rejected a tax levy that included those higher rates.
The council voted 4-4 on the approval of the new tax levy, with aldermen Bret Brosman, Larry Bennett, Larry Cable and Andy Lester voting for the new levy and aldermen Jerry Swarm, Dean Black, Mike Hobler and Lisa McNutt casting dissenting votes.
Mayor Rick Gottman broke the tie by voting not to approve the levy.
