Cleveland County May Propose Arts Tax Levy Vote

The economy might be down, but Cleveland-area politicians are talking about putting a new tax of the arts on a Novermber ballot, hoping to raise $14 million to $18 million per year for the arts. “I think it’s definitely time that we have to put our money where our mouth is with this particular industry. We’re trying to team up the arts-levy request with another popular issue. We thought a combination request would be an easier sell.”
