Niles City Council passes first reading of 5-year financial plan

The vote Thursday night was 5 to 2 in favor of the plan

NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – Niles City Council passed the first reading of a 5-year financial plan — if it works, the city will be out of its fiscal emergency.

On Monday, council was first presented with the plan.

The vote Thursday night was 5 to 2 in favor of the plan. The two “no” votes came from Frank Pezzano and Linda Marchese, who oppose turning city tax collections over to the Regional Income Tax Agency.

The second reading vote happened Friday night and the third reading vote will happen on Monday.
