St. Pius X Welcomes City Representatives, New Community Center Discussion
St. Pius X Church and School was pleased to host representatives from the City of Reynoldsburg—Donna Bauman, Reynoldsburg Parks & Recreation Director, and Brian Kridler, Senior Vice President – Strategy & Innovation for the YMCA of Central Ohio—after all Masses on the weekend of February 24-25, 2017, when they answered questions and listened to concerns from local citizens about the proposed Reynoldsburg Community Center and the tax levy that will support it.
Preliminary schematic drawings of the community center were also on display at this event. The drawings were developed following several town hall meetings that helped the city gain thoughts and ideas from community residents. These drawings are on display at Reynoldsburg City Hall and can be viewed by the public Monday – Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
In May, city officials will be asking Reynoldsburg residents to make an investment in their community through an income tax increase of 1%, something the city has not asked for in 33 years. This will affect individuals working IN the city of Reynoldsburg and, if passed, will raise the city income tax from 1.5% to 2.5%. This much-needed increase will be used to improve city streets, water, and sewer line infrastructure; ensure adequate police protection, and make needed improvements and upgrades to our city parks and senior center. The additional revenue will also enable the city to build a community center which will be operated by the YMCA.
All residents are encouraged to come to the next town hall meeting on Wednesday, April 12 at 6:30 PM at Reynoldsburg City Hall, 7232 East Main Street, if you have additional questions.
