Tax meeting set for Wednesday

A community forum on Referendum 2B, the Craig lodging tax proposal, is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Craig City Hall, 300. W. Fourth St. The meeting is open to the public.

“There are a lot of misconceptions about the tax, how it will be spent and the affect it will have on local businesses,” Progress for Craig committee member Christina Oxley said. “We want people to go to the polls and make their decision based on the right information, not rumor or speculation.”

Progress for Craig is a group of Craig residents who have joined to support 2B.

Several committee members and Craig City Council members will be available Wednesday to answers questions about the proposed 6.9-percent lodging tax, the impact it would have and the ordinance that dictates how the money will be spent.
