Public Comments: Local Law B

The Mayor is considering signing Local Law B and is accepting comments for the next seven days until March 27, 2020 at 5:00pm.

Local Law B would move future moneys received through the short-term lodging tax to be credited and deposited to the general fund for allocation during the budget process for any municipal purpose including a portion of which may be allocated to the Tourism Board.

After discussion at Common Council meetings and the Common Council's public hearing, the Common Council passed the resolution unanimously on 3/17/2020.

The Mayor’s public hearing requirement prior to signing proposed local laws has been suspended due to the public health emergency occasioned by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

3/27 UPDATE: comments are closed. View Comments.
