Ontario City Council Thursday night tabled an ordinance amending increasing the credit towards the Ontario income tax for income tax paid to other municipalities of up to 1 1/2 percent effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Council president Dan Zeiter said in 2010, the sitting members of city council decided that in addition to the half-percent tax that was voted in for the police levy they would take away one percent of the 1 1/2 percent forgiveness tax applied to anyone who worked outside the city of Ontario.

Zeiter said the measure was done without a vote from the citizens.

"I've received a lot of complaints since that time. I vowed to those people who complained that I would bring the issue back up to council before I was done with my tenure," Zeiter said.

"I thought they should decide if they should continue to the tax. The issue will now go to a committee for review," Zeiter said. "The city has $11.5 million in the bank and I don't think it's fair that we continue to tax people on top of the tax they're already paying where they work," Zeiter said.

In other business, council approved an ordinance establishing a maximum speed limit of 70 mph on rural roadways.
