Delaware County Sets Date for LOSST Election

Delaware County has set November 7th as the date for the Local Option Sales and Services Tax election.

Voters will be asked to renew this one-cent sales tax, which is currently set to expire at the end of 2019.

The Local Option Sales and Services Tax can only be implemented on January 1st or July 1st of any given year. County officials say by having it in conjunction with the city election, it will save the cities money.

The Delaware County Treasurer position will also be on the November ballot. The position was filled by appointment earlier this year following the retirement of longtime treasurer Carolyn Wilson.
