FULTON — Fulton voters will decide early next month whether or not staying overnight in the city will cost more.
Fulton officials have selected June 5 to hold a special election to determine whether or not to implement a 3 percent “tourism tax” on hotel stays in the city.
The proposed tax will have to be approved by 60 percent of the city’s voters.
