The Cadiz City Council votes tonight (June 4) on the proposed restaurant tax at their regular scheduled meeting. 

If passed, the law will levy a 3 per cent tax on all restaurants with a business license within the city. All tax money collected would be turned over to the Cadiz-Trigg County Tourism Commission in its campaign to increase marketing efforts and promote local business. The council voted in May to draft the ordinance with Mayor Lyn Bailey casting a tie-breaking vote. The tourism commission would be required to adopt a budget within thirty days of adoption. The council estimates that the tax could bring in an additional 300 thousand dollars in revenue.
