Salem Residents To Vote On Payroll Tax

(Salem, OR) -- Salem voters will get to decide a payroll tax to fund emergency services. Nearly 13-thousand signatures were gathered on petitions sending the issue to the November ballot. City Council passed the tax on a 5 to 4 vote in early June. It would raise around 28-million-dollars a year. Supporters of the tax say in Salem there are so many state buildings that are exempt from property taxes it limits their ability to raise revenue for city services.
