City Council Approves Readings For Tax Increases

{West Virginia}...South Charleston City Council took a step forward Thursday to raise several city fees and taxes. Council members unanimously passed the first readings of three separate ordinances under which the municipal service fee would go from $25 per quarter to $40 per quarter, the city's hotel/motel tax rate would go from three percent to six percent and the commercial refuse rate would increase. The municipal service fee hasn't been raised since 1992. Those services cost the city $6.9 million to provide. Council will look at the ordinances for a second reading at a regular meeting July 21st.
