Tax amnesty is a new one-time initiative launched by the City of Green Income Tax Division that allows taxpayers a chance to pay any delinquent/back income taxes without penalties and interest. This opportunity to “catch up” on your taxes includes both taxes due on returns that have not yet been filed as well as taxes due on tax returns previously filed but not yet paid. Please note: If you need help with completing your return, free Green tax return preparation and/or assistance is available at our office during the posted office hours. Appointments are highly recommended due to the ongoing pandemic.
The City of Green’s tax amnesty program is available November 2, 2020 through January 29, 2021.
Those taxpayers and businesses that have not yet paid the full tax amount due on their Green income taxes qualify for tax amnesty. This includes accounts referred for legal action as well as accounts collected by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office.
All resident individuals and partial year residents, 18 years of age or older, must file a City of Green tax return, even if no income is earned or no tax is due.
Non-resident individuals who receive compensation for work done or services performed within the City of Green whose employer has not withheld City of Green income tax must file a tax return. Also, non-residents who own property or conduct business in Green must file, even if no tax is due.
Resident and non-resident businesses, contractors, and subcontractors located or doing business in the City of Green, even if no tax is due.
During the available tax amnesty period, the City of Green will allow residents and businesses to:
To this end, individuals and businesses that wish to take advantage of tax amnesty must calculate how much is owed for back taxes by preparing the appropriate returns or by referring to the appropriate City of Green tax bill. Please keep in mind that, when filing, a tax return is not considered “complete” until our office receives all of the proper paperwork.
In order to properly and accurately process your tax return for any given year, copies of the following documents must be submitted to our office:
For part-year residents, copies of additional documentation in the form of state tax returns, leases, or rental agreements substantiating move-in or move-out dates, pay stubs establishing income made while a resident of Green, and/or other city municipal tax returns may be necessary to complete your return.
Tax amnesty is a one-time opportunity for businesses and individuals who owe City of Green taxes to file delinquent tax returns and pay those back taxes without penalties and interest.
The City of Green Income Tax Division will be increasing its efforts to thoroughly identify noncompliant taxpayers. After the income tax amnesty period has ended, any taxpayers who did not file and/or pay the proper city income tax will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the City of Green Income Tax Ordinance and be held responsible for all penalties and interest levied against any outstanding tax balance(s).
To determine your tax liability, you will need to complete your tax returns. If you have already filed your tax returns, you can refer to your tax bill. If you need help with completing your return, free Green tax return preparation and/or assistance is available at our office during the posted office hours.
The office is open 8:00am until 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. The office will be closed on all federal holidays and the day after Thanksgiving.
The City of Green offers payment plans utilizing a service called ACH (Automated ClearingHouse) Electronic Funds Transfer. With ACH, payments will be deducted directly from a checking or savings account on the 1st of each month. Please note that payment plans are an option for those accounts that are current. If you wish to take advantage of the payment plan option, you must first file City of Green tax returns for each tax year that is delinquent. Tax amnesty will be offered on payment plans as follows:
Missing a payment will result in the payment plan being cancelled and the full penalties, interest and late filing fee will be applied to the tax due.
Yes, additional taxes may be added to a taxpayer’s current payment plan upon request. To take advantage of the tax amnesty program, one the two amnesty payment plan options above must be taken.
Green’s tax rate is 2%.
Residents receive 100% credit, up to Green’s 2% tax rate, for taxes paid to other cities.

A Variance is a request by a property owner to, literally, vary from the city code requirements when constructing an improvement to their home or a detached structure on their property. A Residential example would be that the proposed structure will be taller or larger than code permits or closer to the property line than code permits. Examples of a Variance request for a Commercial project may be:
The Board may not grant a variance to permit a Use in a Zoning District where that Use is prohibited; to do so would have the effect of re-zoning.
A property owner who feels that a zoning or city official has made an error in a decision or application of the code may file an Appeal to be heard before the Board of Zoning Appeals. The Board will consider the code language and information presented by both sides and make a ruling.
The City Charter is the governing document defining how the City’s administration is organized and how the City is run. Similar to the U.S. Constitution or the State of Ohio Constitution, the City Charter can only be changed if approved by a majority vote by the people.
The original City Charter was drafted and ratified by voters in 1992, when Green became a City in 1992. The first Charter review occurred five years after the Charter was created. Subsequent reviews are every seven years thereafter (Article 9.1). This is the fourth time the Charter has been reviewed by a Charter Review Commission.
With the passage of the Charter Amendment (Issue 14, November 2018) to move from an appointed law director to an Elected Director of Law, the Charter Commission proposes several Charter Amendments to clarify items related to the Director of Law such as partial terms, qualifications, removal from office, etc.
The 2019 Charter Review Commission, appointed by the Mayor and approved by City Council, are Susan Allen, chair; Vivian Duffrin, vice-chair; and members Sherry Neubert, CJ Meager, and Ted Mallo.
The Charter Review Commission met 12 times from January 2019 through June 2019. Their role was to re-examine the Charter and review proposed changes presented by city administrators and the general public. During these public meetings, the commission members reviewed the entire Charter and solicited input from City administrators and the general public for proposed language changes and updates to the charter. The Commission decided on proposed amendments in public hearings. Following these hearings, the Commission presented the proposed amendments to City Council for approval to place the amendment on the ballot. The amendments will become part of the Charter if a majority of voters approve them on November 5, 2019.
Yes. City Council may submit a proposed Charter Amendment to voters at any time. Also registered voters in the City of Green may conduct a petition initiative to propose an amendment to voters. For a petition initiative amendment to be placed on the ballot, the petition must be signed by 10% of voters who voted in the last municipal election.
For Green voters, Issues 23-35 on the Nov. 5, 2019 General Election Ballot were presented by the City Charter Review Commission and accepted by City Council.

An annual estimate and first quarter payment is required to be filed by April 15 for the 2022 tax year if the non-withheld tax liability will exceed $200. The interest rate applicable to calendar year 2022 will be 5% per annum. Remaining quarterly estimated payments will be billed quarterly and are due as follows:
Without roundabouts, this section of 241 South, based on current and future traffic amounts, would need to be nine lanes wide at the traffic signals. Building nine lanes of traffic would cost far more and be less safe than the roundabout design.
Sign up for text alerts! While the City of Green will provide updates on social media, in newsletters and on our website, the easiest way to stay up to date to changes is with text alerts. Just text GREENOH to 99411 to get signed up. Please include your a Green address -- home or work address - to receive messages tailored to your specific location.
For the next few weeks, depending on the time of day, it may be better to take an alternate route to I-77. However, traffic will be maintained along Raber Road through this early phase of construction. Please anticipate some delays.
While gas, sewer and water lines run underground, the cost to place telephone, electric and cable lines underground for this project was more than the budget allowed. It was our desire to put these utilities underground and we made every attempt to do so, but in the end it was too cost prohibitive.
Once Massillon Road is widened to four lanes with a center median, motorists can only make a right turn into and out of drives along Massillon Road between Raber Road and SR619. The roundabouts will be used like U-turns to change direction along the corridor. For example, if you are leaving Handel’s (and want to go south toward I-77), you will make a right onto Massillon Road, then take the roundabout at Stein Road to reverse direction to go south.
The Massillon Road North Corridor Improvement Project is expected to be mostly completed by the end of 2021. Some restoration (landscaping) may extend into the Spring of 2022. It’s a multi-phased project that includes three roundabouts, widening the road to four lanes with a center median, a multi-purpose trail on the west side of the road and traditional sidewalk on the east side.
Currently the corridor is perhaps our most congested road in the City and isn’t equipped for the growth in traffic to come in the years and decades ahead. The added lanes ensure the corridor can handle the additional vehicles (expected to grow on a per-day basis from 21,000 to an estimated 41,000 by 2035*). *Per AMATS Traffic Study Estimate
Under current conditions, heavy traffic and obscured sight-lines make it difficult to make left turns within the corridor. The roundabouts at Raber Road, Stein Road and SR 619 will make the corridor more efficient and safer. Motorist will only be able to make right turns into and out of businesses along the corridor, then use the closest roundabout as a “U-turn” to head in the opposite direction. This new traffic pattern will make the corridor easier and safer for motorist.
Plus, the addition of walking and bike paths helps encourage a more active lifestyle.
The new southbound lanes will be constructed first. While this is happening, traffic will be maintained on the current road, one lane going north and one going south.
Next will be the reconstruction of the two northbound lanes. While this is happening, traffic will be maintained on the new southbound lanes, with one lane going north and one going south. Signage will be added to direct motorists to businesses along the corridor.
We don’t anticipate full road closures along Massillon Road. There will be occasional lane closures that still allow traffic to proceed. Raber Road is scheduled to be closed for a short period of time in early 2021. Also SR 619 will be closed in sections for a limited time in 2021. Portions of SR619, east and west of Massillon Road, will be closed at different times periods. The closures of Raber and SR619 will not be at the same time. Businesses and the traveling public will be notified of these closures well in advance.
On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, the City filed an action with the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals challenging the issuance of an environmental permit by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to NEXUS. The permit is called a Water Quality Certificate and is necessary for nexus to proceed with construction of the line in Ohio. The permit is issued to address the pipeline's environmental impacts on surface waters like wetlands and streams. The City also appealed the issuance of the permit by filing with the Ohio EPA's environmental review appeals commission (ERAC) which rules on action by the director of the Ohio EPA.
Based upon the city's research, in coordination with its outside environmental legal counsel, this approach provides the City with the highest probability of allowing a court to consider arguments to oppose the pipeline. In the last 15 years, 14 interstate pipeline projects have been stopped. Six of those projects were stopped by challenges to the state-issued environmental water quality certificate. In 2017, the only successful challenges involved state water quality permits.
In February 2017, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is the commission that issues approvals for interstate pipelines, no longer had a quorum to conduct business. FERC did not have a quorum until early August when new members appointed by the President were confirmed by the United States Senate. FERC issued its approval to NEXUS on August 25, 2017.
Between February and August, the City worked with its legal counsel and environmental consultants and filed additional comments and documentation with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) detailing environmental issues that should have been addressed during the permitting process. The City also obtained copies of the Ohio EPA and Army Corps files on the NEXUS permitting process. In August 2017, the City met with the director of the Ohio EPA and his staff about the City's concerns.
That is correct.
The City is aware 6 to 7 other interested parties and entities have challenged the FERC approval by filing a request for rehearing before FERC. This is an administrative proceeding in which Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) reviews its own actions. The City will continue to collaborate with those groups, such as CORN, the City of Oberlin and the Sierra Club. However, the City chose not to appeal to FERC, but instead chose to concentrate its efforts on challenging the state permit. This decision was based on case law research indicating that challenging the issuance of a certificate before FERC has never been successful.
Through the end of August 2017, the City has spend approximately $67,000 on legal and environmental consultant fees and provided a payment to CORN of an additional $10,000.
No, it is not.
It was filed by CORN in an attempt to stop Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) from issuing the certificate (approval) to NEXUS. FERC subsequently approved the pipeline on August 25, 2017.
A magistrate who reviewed the case has recommended to the judge that the case be dismissed in full. The court asked for additional briefings to be submitted by September 15, 2017, at noon. Court records appear to show that the CORN briefing was not submitted by the deadline.
No. The City has not provided the three easements NEXUS has requested. Nor has the City provided permission for the 14 necessary right of way crossings NEXUS has requested.
If NEXUS has requested an easement from you, one option is do not give them the easement. We anticipate that if you do not sign an easement agreement NEXUS will be filing an eminent domain action against you. NEXUS will also be filing an eminent domain against the City of Green. This will likely happen very quickly. The City understands that NEXUS has only secured 65% of the easements needed in the city, even though NEXUS claims to have over 90% of the easements for the whole project.

A wider sidewalk makes it easier and safer for two-way travel along the path for biking, walking, strollers, and jogging. More than 600 households will have direct access to the path, the wider path allows for much safer and comfortable movement.
Preliminary estimate for construction is $1 million. The city received $500,000 from a federal grant for construction of the active transportation corridor.
We are currently developing a cost estimate for a five-foot sidewalk. Regardless of the difference, both options require the existing road to be relocated, which is a significant portion of the cost.
No. The next step in the process is to request funding for final design and construction plans for the project from City Council. If approved, once the design and construction plans are completed, additional legislation will be brought forward for council to approve the construction contract.
The 10-foot sidewalk will be concrete.
The city will maintain the path.
Per City code, motorized vehicles are not permitted on sidewalks.
As part of the 2014 Land Use Plan (Master Trail Plan), this connecting segment of trail was identified to extend the access to neighborhoods in our northeast quadrant of our City. The Connectivity Study identified corridors for future connections from neighborhoods to our parks, schools and retail areas.
Long Range Land-Use PlanConnectivity Study
We break any transportation project into smaller segments. This segment stops at Mayfair Road because it is a logical break/stopping point, while also being a significant connector to more than 1,500 households within a half-mile radius. This segment extends our connection from the east side of our community to I-77 and central Green.
No. However, the Buckeye Trail, a trail that loops the entire state, crosses through the City of Green from the east along Wise Road, Steese Road and Nimisila before it reenters Stark County.
When future funding (grant or local) becomes available, additional segments may be built to the north, east or south.
Yes. The path will be made of concrete with accessible curb ramps.
Currently, the road is not centered in the right-of-way. Ideally a roadway is centered in the right-of-way, so that utilities, sidewalks, etc. can be accommodated outside of the roadway pavement within the City’s property. We will need to move the road to keep the sidewalk in the City’s right-of-way.
The simple answer is cost. Adding a curb to the roadway will require significant drainage infrastructure to be constructed including lowering the road, which would add significant cost.
This project is currently slated to be funded by $500,000 of Federal funds, specific to this project and can NOT be allocated elsewhere. The remaining amount needed to build the path will be funded by local dollars, which could be allocated elsewhere.
Building amenities such as bike and pedestrian-friendly paths improves the quality of life for those in our community. Within a ½ mile radius, more than 1,500 homes would be positively impacted by the is project.
The noise levels from motorized vehicles most likely will not change due to the addition of the sidewalk. The road will be relocated slightly to the north (up to 10 feet toward the Mayfair Golf Course) and farther away from the existing homes. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic does not significantly increase noise levels along roads.
No. There are not any trees anticipated to be planted. However, all existing trees along the sidewalk will remain.
No. These path connections are designed to connect neighborhoods to areas of interest – parks, schools and retail corridors.
It’s a seven-foot-wide grassy area, commonly referred to as a tree lawn.

Per our community contract with Republic, they may add a fuel surcharge when diesel fuel in our area reaches an average of $4 per gallon or more over a three-month period. Diesel fuel has been increasing over the past several months and is averaging more than $4/gallon. Fuel surcharge clauses are typical in fleet-based services.
The fuel charge will be based on the three-month average of diesel fuel per gallon. Therefore, the line item will fluctuate from invoice to invoice. Republic Services invoices quarterly and will be a line item on the July – September 2022 bill sent in June 2022.
The fuel charge will remain until the average diesel fuel per gallon is less than $4 over a three-month period. The surcharge will be removed 3-months after the average drops below this amount.
No. In 1994, City Council approved an ordinance (94-3 passed on 3/22/1994) that created a trash aggregation program for residents in Green. This ordinance permits the City to negotiate a trash contract on behalf of the residents and requires all residential property owners to use the approved provider. The current Republic Service contract was approved by Green City Council in March 2021 (ordinance 2021-R10 passed on 3/9/2021).
Yes. There are several reduced rate options including a senior rate for limited service or a per bag rate, which is a good option for those who do not produce a lot of trash each week. Please contact Republic at 330-834-4969 to learn more.
Your Internet speed (i.e. bandwidth) determines how many devices can access your internet at one time, and how fast. The most bandwidth consuming process is typically streaming video from the internet. To stream full HD (1080p) video, it is typically recommended to have internet of at least 5mbps, however, if you only have 5mbps internet, you will really only be able to have that specific streaming device connected to your internet, or else your video streaming quality will degrade significantly.

Simply call the Call Center at 800-247-3644.
The list of items is clearly outlined on the Republic Services brochure and the City of Green web site. Please stick to the list. Placing the wrong items into the recycling bin creates an undo expense. Examples of items that are NOT Recyclable are appliances, metal blinds and children’s toys which mistakenly get placed in the cart, causing contaminants.
No. As a residential property in Green, property owners are required to use the same trash provider. In 2003, City Council passed an ordinance (10-R56) that required the City administration to obtain the best value for Green residential trash removal that would also minimize congestion and wear and tear on our streets related to multiple trash removal providers. To obtain the best value, the City engaged in a competitive bidding process. Republic was the lowest and best bid following this process.
Residents with UNLIMITED service may order additional carts through Republic after March 25 trash or recycle carts are $3 each month.
