T.O.T. Expansion Set For Vote
The Tuolumne County Supervisors are scheduled to formally vote on whether to place the Transient Occupancy Tax expansion on the June ballot.
At the past couple of meetings the Supervisors have been debating whether to include exemptions for some groups and organizations. The revised ordinance that will be up for discussion on Tuesday would exempt the Boy and Girl Scouts, developmentally disabled people that attend camps, school sponsored education programs, and religious organizations that have a 501 ©3.
The ballot measure would expand the T.O.T. to include campgrounds, houseboats and RV parks. Much of the funding would then go to save Railtown 1897 and the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.
The Supervisors will also continue a public hearing on the proposed Argonaut Estates Subdivision. The developer is CALI Investments, LLC. It calls for creating 18 housing lots over 114 acres in an area 1 ½ miles east of the Greenley Road/Cabezut Road intersection.
Tuesday’s meeting starts at 9am, and it will be streamed live in the multimedia section of myMotherLode.com.
