Lodging tax will fund $15M Warren County sports complex

Taxpayers in Warren County will have “zero liability” for a $15-million sports complex other than a county lodging tax, after county commissioners agreed to use the lodging tax to finance the complex, the Dayton Daily News reports. The “3 percent lodging tax, as well as 1 percent recently added” will “be pledged to pay off debt” on the Warren County Sports Park at Union Village, according to the article. The commissioners also voted “to transfer the property for the sports complex to the Warren County Port Authority.” The port authority is expected to vote next Monday to “issue more than $15 million in debt to pay for the facility.” For more, read the full article.
