Placeholder Image
McMinnville has been given permission from the state legislature to levy a 2.5 percent hospitality tax on local motels. Officials must now decide if they want to pursue the tax by passing an ordinance to enforce it.Per state requirement, the ordinance must receive two-thirds majority vote by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, which is greater than the threshold of more than half which is normally used. Ordinances require two passing reads.
