NEW PHILADELPHIA ‒ The city collected $708,486.73 more in income tax revenue last year, an increase Mayor Joel Day attributes to the expansion of Battle Motors and other businesses in the city.

“When you get that kind of jump and the number of jobs that Battle has added, it has to be a direct correlation,” he said. “But not just Battle Motors, Freeport Press, Gradall, many of our small businesses have added employees, so it has that cumulative effect. It’s an indication that the economy in New Philadelphia is growing, and so is the city. That’s very encouraging.”
