City drops parking meter proposal, transient occupancy tax increase
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Based on the results of last year’s citizen surveys and the current economic climate, the city has decided to drop the proposal to implement parking meters and an increase in transient occupancy tax, according to spokeswoman Nancy Kerry.
“Those two things in this economic climate, do not seem wise,” Kerry said.
Neither of the items will be discussed at the March 6 city council meeting.
There is a possibility that the two items may come back in the future, but Kerry doesn’t see it being any time soon, she said.
“We’ll see what the survey says next year,” she said.
The city will continue with its push for a ballot measure that would increase the cap on business license fees, Kerry said.
