The 0.5 % is a wrong number. How about 30% more of what you currently pay in Shaker Heights income tax! That is the actual increase they are asking. Besides, you also pay for income tax on the city where you work. All residents should not be scared to cut back on services offered by the city. They should rather ask the City to do more elimination of departments and cuts on pensions and other legacy costs. For sure many residents will leave the city if they can still sell their house and we will surely go to a faster path of declining home values and tax base and more abandoned houses. We will be campaigning to stop this
