A a. 1 Oppenheimer spearheads voter petition against new tax a taxpayer revolt brewing in Madeira by Maureen there is a possible taxpayer revolt brewing in Madeira spearheaded by City councilman Douglas Oppenheimer. He and Madeira residents Chuck Salemme and Jim Williams plan to initiate a voter petition opposing City councils raising of the City earnings tax from a half percent to one percent. Council was expected to approve the tax hike at its meeting monday after suburban life went to press. Council has the authority to vote up to a one percent earnings tax without asking the electorate. The tax will be a reciprocal one paid by people who work in Madeira and by people who live in Madeira and who work in another City if the City has no earnings tax or a tax of less than one percent. Residents pay first where they work and then where they live with credit Given for the former Oppenheimer said he has consistently opposed new taxation particularly to pay for three City capital improvements a new City service building renovation of City Hail basement for a new police dept and construction of a Park at Dawson re.
