Lodging tax collection begins April 1
Thursday, February 10, 2011
Jefferson City’s lodging tax increase to fund a new conference center may have passed a vote of the people on Tuesday, but don’t expect to see too much construction on the project begin any time in the near future.
That was the message City Administrator Steve Rasmussen had the day after 56 percent of Jefferson City voters approved a 4-cent increase to the city’s lodging tax.
The main reason for the delay between the vote and any official action, Rasmussen said, is because there is going to be significant time devoted for public input.
