I read the article in your paper about the Craig City Council wanting to add a tax for the city to add to the state tax on hotels/motels.
My husband and I own a small motel. We keep our rates low because most of our customers are workers from out of town. Many are laid off months at a time.
We also have hunters from out of state that save and plan all year, only to be surprised by high prices when they arrive.
It appears the City Council doesn't even have a plan for the money. Does that mean they really don't need it?
With the economy the way it is, shame on you for raising anything. And why would you take from people who help the economy of this town?
