Grandview Special Election Tax To Promote Tourism

Attention all GRANDVIEW RESIDENTS: Please vote no on the proposed "targeted" tax increase during the August special election. A 5% tax on hotels to promote tourism is wrong. First of all, isolating specific business types for tax increases is un-american and I say shame on the council for proposing such a thing.  Just because other cities have done it, to their detriment, doesn't mean we should. Second, let's be honest, what tourism is there to be had in Grandview, and why tax the only industry that is actually related to Grandview tourism.  What are the various places for people to tour.
