City to begin process to annex two hotel properties
Sunday, February 13, 2011
After Tuesday’s vote in Jefferson City to increase the city’s lodging tax from 4 cents per dollar to 7 cents, one of the next steps in the process is to annex two more hotels into the city.
According to City Attorney Nathan Nickolaus, the area that will be included in the annexation will not include any residences, but it will include two hotels — the Hampton Inn Jefferson City and Comfort Suites — which are owned by the Puri Group of Enterprises Inc.
But the question of how the city will annex the hotels still looms.
