+ Commission makes business-tax revision
The Town Commission adopted an ordinance that revises a category of the town’s business-tax-receipt program to reduce the cost paid by individuals renting their boat slips.
Town Manager Bruce St. Denis recommended that the business tax be reduced from $103.95 to $33.60 per year after slip owners complained about the high cost of the tax.
