ARTESIA SPLIT TAX VOTES: Hotel Tax Wins; Business Liscense Tax Loses


The City of Artesia's hopes for raising both the Hotel Occupancy tax and Business Liscense Fees has been given a split decision by the voters. 

Late votes make it appear to that Measure S (which will more than double the hotel/motel tax from 6% to 12.5%) has been approved by a 50.78% to 49.22% margin.

Voters also defeated Measure Y that would have created a new business liscense fee structure by a slim 9 vote margin.

Very few votes remain to be counted here in Artesia, and another update will be posted on FRIDAY.
