Come Nov. 1, the village of Lyons will no longer be the only town in Fulton County not to have an income tax.
The village will be sending letters out to residents the week of Oct. 24 informing them of the new tax. The city will tax incomes 1 percent.
The village’s finances have been impaired by recent projects for the water system, Mayor Andrea Gleckler said. The village also needs funding for streets and sidewalks, she said.
“We do need more money,” Gleckler said.
