City’s restaurant tax proposal dies
Published: March 23,2010
D’IBERVILLE — A referendum for a 2 percent restaurant tax in D’Iberville won’t be on the November ballot.
City manager Michael Janus said the deadline was 5 p.m. March 19, and Sen. Tommy Gollott and Rep. Steven Palazzo, both of Biloxi, declined to introduce the bill.
Mayor Rusty Quave Quave tells The Sun Herald that the city will probably try again next year. But he said before the next legislative session, the city will have meetings with the restaurant owners and residents and also have time to talk to the legislators.
Janus said the referendum would have allow residents to decide whether the tax should be levied to raise funds for a new police and fire building, sports facilities and tourist promotions.
