XENIA — Greene County commissioners voted this morning to place a sales tax increase to fund a new jail on the March ballot.
The 3-0 decision means voters will be asked on March 17 whether to raise the county sales tax a quarter percent for a period of 12 years.
New revenue is needed to fund the building of a new jail and sheriff’s office, a project estimated at $60 million, county officials have said.
The plan is to build a new 500-bed facility next to the county’s juvenile justice center and across from the Greene County Adult Detention Center on Greene Way Boulevard on the west side of Xenia.
