Hamilton Co. commissioners approve Union Terminal sales tax proposal for Nov. ballot

Music Hall dropped from ballot initiative

CINCINNATI – The question of whether voters will have a say on the so-called "icon tax" looks like it will go down to the wire.

Business and community leaders who comprised the Cultural Facilities Task Force want the commissioners to let voters decide whether to raise Hamilton County's sales tax by a quarter of a cent on the dollar to help fund hundreds of millions in renovations to Union Terminal and Music Hall.

If the measure makes it to the ballot, and the voters approve it, the county sales tax would increase from 6.75 cents on the dollar to 7 cents on the dollar.
