Hotel Occupancy Tax is hot city budget topic

The City’s Hotel/Motel Tax Advisory Board’s recommendation of funding more dollars for projects than members of the Council feel are likely to be collected had frustration showing among some council members at their Monday night budget workshop.

The HOT board was basing their recommendation on collecting $41,000 in the special tax. The tax has generated less than $31,000 over the past 11 months. See the rest of the story in the Aug. 29 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
