Council Member Waters spoke about the history of the tax and why he, Mayor Hiremath, and Council Members Snider and Hornat doubled the tax in 2010.
Council Member Hornat noted that he would in no way consider a change in the tax. The town simply can not "afford it." A1 percentage point change in the tax is worth $720,000 to the town. "I don't see the point of even considering a reduction."
The council will discuss the tax further in November.
However, at the moment, they will not even consider a change in it.
Watch their remarks.
