Hike in sales tax pitched for city projects

Harriman City Council approved first reading of an ordinance calling for a sales tax referendum to ask voters to increase the city’s local sales tax for infrastructure needs.

Currently, the city’s local sales and use tax is 2.5 percent of the 9.5 percent rate imposed on purchases in Harriman.

The ordinance proposes a referendum asking voters to decide on increasing the city’s share to 2.75 percent, which Harriman Mayor Chris Mason estimates could generate as much as $400,000 annually.
