Lodging Tax and Retail Marijuana Information Open House @ Council Chambers
Aug 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
City Council is considering placing two ballot measures on the November 2021 election. One is regarding the authorization of a tax on overnight commercial lodging visitors to our community in hotels, motels, campgrounds, and short-term rentals. The second item City Council is considering is a measure that would adopt new regulations permitting retail sales of marijuana to adults within the parameters of Amendment 64 and to impose an excise tax on the commercial sales.
Join us for an Open House in Council Chambers (911 10th St.) on August 3 from 5 to 6 p.m. to learn more about these issues and provide input on what you support including parameters or funding scenarios. Learn more about both potential ballot measures at www.GuidingGolden.com.
Stick around after the Open House for the Houselessness Panel presentation, which will immediately follow.
