Concord’s JEDD….

We were asked by a neighbor on to provide information the Joint Economic Development District (JEDD) that was formed by an agreement with Concord and Painesville officials.  The relocation of the hospital from Painesville to its current location in Concord caused a financial hardship on Painesville. However, since Concord is a township and cannot collect income taxes, a creative means of collecting income taxes was developed.  A JEDD was created, the Regional Income Taxing Authority (RITA) collects the income tax (using Painesville authority to collect income taxes) from the employees and businesses within the JEDD. Here is how the revenue is split:

Total Receipts CY 2016                       $957,023.33
Rita’s Overhead Costs  (3%)              ($   28,202.45)
Net Revenue to be Distributed         $928,820.88
JEDD (8%)                                               ($   74,305.63)
Balance to be Distributed                  $854,515.25
City of Painesville (25%)                      $213,628.79
Concord Township (75%)                     $640,886.46

We have a great deal of details on yearly expenditures by the JEDD.  Here is a summary from 2014 – August, 2017.

The Board Members in the JEDD receive no compensation.

As an FYI, Tri-Point hospital is a “Non-Profit” and pays no real estate taxes supporting our local schools.  This is another reason for the need for additional real estate taxes from residents.
