  Original Published: 11/6/2013Voters in Bucyrus agree to pay an extra 1/2% income tax to fund city safety forces. Mayor Roger A. Moore says it's a relief knowing the city will have more money for the fire and police departments. Moore says the city plans to add five new police officers in the next year. Fire Chief Jay Keller says the addtional tax money will help retain four firefighters that are now being paid through a federal grant that was set to expire in 2014.
