Cadiz City Council To Vote On Restaurant Tax

Cadiz Record

The Cadiz City Council votes tonight (June 4) on the proposed restaurant tax at their regular scheduled meeting. 

If passed, the law will levy a 3 per cent tax on all restaurants with a business license within the city. All tax money collected would be turned over to the Cadiz-TriggCounty Tourism Commission in its campaign to increase marketing efforts and promote local business. The council voted in May to draft the ordinance with Mayor Lyn Bailey casting a tie-breaking vote. The tourism commission would be required to adopt a budget within thirty days of adoption. The council estimates that the tax could bring in an additional 300 thousand dollars in revenue.
