A decision to implement a 5 percent hotel/motel occupancy tax in the city of Kingston is moving forward.
Kingston City Council voted 4-1 in favor of implementing the tax, with Councilman Brant Williams opposing.
“This will adversely affect businesses,” Williams said.
The tax increase would mean that guests who stay in one of the city’s four hotels would be paying a total of 19.5 percent in taxes.
This includes the state tax, the county tax and the new city tax.
