Jefferson City Council ponders key concept before lodging tax vote
Sunday, November 28, 2010
While the Jefferson City Council unanimously voted to place a four-cent increase of the city’s lodging tax on the February 2011 ballot for a conference center, there are still several lingering questions.
The biggest question centers around the “lockbox” concept that 3rd Ward Councilman Bob Scrivner first brought up at Monday night’s special council meeting. His plan would be to take the money from the tax increase, if passed by Jefferson City voters, and put it away until a conference center plan is more firmly established.
