Our professional property valuators offer an expert service for the Litigation Property Valuations. While Hamilton County voters prepare to vote Tuesday on a half-cent sales tax for a light rail system and expanded bus service, Northern Kentucky is still exploring its options — all of which face political and legal hurdles — on how it might pay for its share of a new regional transit network. Other counties throughout southwestern Ohio similarly are in the preliminary stages of deciding how they might fund extensions of the light rail lines and bus routes envisioned under the MetroMoves plan before Hamilton County voters next Tuesday.
But TANK, which is leading the light-rail effort south of the river, doesn’t have the taxing authority of its sister organization, the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, which directly put the Hamilton County sales tax on the ballot. Unlike SORTA, Metro’s parent organization, TANK has no authority to place a sales tax levy on county ballots in Northern Kentucky.
