Murray City Council To Hear From Mayor's Committee About Payroll Tax

Jul 27, 2017


  The Murray City Council will hear a committee presentation Thursday night to consider moving forward with the implementation of a city payroll tax.

Mayor’s Committee to Review Needs, Expenditures and Revenue Sources chair Dan Miller said a payroll tax will bring in more revenue than city stickers and will be easier to enforce.


The Murray-Calloway Chamber of Commerce has opposed the tax, citing that many of their members had concerns about implementation and privacy.


The Calloway County Fiscal Court approved a resolution earlier this month calling for the city council to place the proposal on the ballot in the next general election.


A public comment period will follow the committee’s presentation. The meeting begins at 6:30.
