We've had a bit of controversy going on around these parts for a bit now. Revolves around a tax, imagine that. Couple of years back, the city fathers were approached by the folks charged with promoting the city, with the idea of implementing a tax on motel, and hotel rooms. They asked for and received a 1.5% tax, thats added on to the room rate. This was loudly apposed by the area's motel's, and hotel's, but to no avail. At first, some of the hotels/motels didn't collect or pay the tax, but were forced to under penalty of law. Now, two years later, their asking for ANOTHER 1.5%. Their like a dog that has tasted red meat, they only want more, more, and more, until the carcass is stripped clean. The Hotels/Motels are planning a big fight over this increase, and I plan on jumping in on their side. Right now, about 130K is being generated for promotion, and quick frankly, no one can see what these idiots are doing with THAT money. Don't see how ANOTHER 130K is going to help anyone but THEM. Couple of the Hotels owners are Arab, I was going to suggest, that they fly a plane into city hall. Comments?
