Governor Signs Bill Allowing Kosy Vote On Restaurant Tax


Governor Reeves has signed legislation allowing Kosciusko voters to decide whether to add a two per cent restaurant tax to pay for tourism promotion and parks and recreation.  Reeves signed House Bill 1743 Friday.  The board of aldermen will now set a date for the referendum which will need 60 per cent approval to pass.  But Kosciusko Mayor Tim Kyle says the city wants to be able to give voters a better idea of the park improvements the tax would finance before scheduling the election.    The bill includes a provision that would repeal the tax in 2026.
