Jefferson City Council to take up surtax deal

Panel will also discuss raising lodging tax

November 14th, 2010 in News

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.
