Defi­ance city vot­ers will decide on whether to imple­ment an addi­tional 0.3 per­cent income tax for police and fire ser­vices in the Novem­ber elec­tions.

Fol­low­ing a sec­ond read­ing on Tues­day, Defi­ance City Coun­cil sus­pended the rules and approved an ordi­nance levy­ing the increase and a res­o­lu­tion plac­ing the issue before vot­ers this fall.

If approved, the tax would gen­er­ate almost one and a half mil­lion dol­lars annu­ally which would then be ear­marked exclu­sively for police and fire ser­vices. If voted in, the levy would be used for the police and fire bud­gets only.
