Jefferson City Council to take up surtax deal
Panel will also discuss raising lodging tax
Sunday, November 14, 2010
Two issues in particular on Monday will capture the Jefferson City Council’s focus — the city’s surtax settlement with Cole County and a plan to potentially put a 4-cent increase of the city’s lodging tax on the February 2011 ballot.
About a week ago, Cole County Collector Larry Vincent sent city officials a proposal designed to redistribute surtax funds that were incorrectly distributed among 13 entities because of a mistake made with the surtax formula in 1989.
