New tourism tax in the Falls discussed

From the Niagara Gazette:

A new “tourism tax” is in the works in the City of Niagara Falls.

City Council Chairman Sam Fruscione and members of the Niagara Falls Tourism Advisory Board on Monday discussed plans to impose a 50-cent tax on tickets sold by area attractions and tour operators.

Supporters say the effort, modeled after a similar tax applied to attractions in Niagara Falls, Ont., would create a pool of funds the city desperately needs to carry out economic development projects, road repairs and demolition of neglected and abandoned buildings.
