Lets see. Hotel, Motel send the money in to the town.
Now the town says it would cost $75,000.00 to administer it. So they spend $3.00 to make $1.00. Something not right. Once the money is in, it just needs to be sent out to the right agencies. That easy because it should be a percentage to each one.
So why do they say it will cost that much, so wonder Malone going down faster every year.

County Treasurer Bryon Varin has said a bed tax might bring in about $100,000 a year, but administrative costs could reduce the actual revenue to $25,000.

those are facts in Varin's head, no it does not cost that much. also the taxpayers are not the one's paying this tax, unless they check into a hotel here, cause if they check in anywhere else in the country, they will be paying that bed tax, county tax payers will not be taxed, the county collects state sales tax from them hotels/motels/b&b, already, can be collected at the same time, unless you have a friend or relative you want to create a job for with benefits, then of course it would cost that much.

Why do you even care Drunk?

Why does it matter that the county is trying to increase revenue?

Did you know Franklin county is the only county in the five counties up here that still has a fund balance? Were you aware of that? Economically, things are much less turbulent than our neighbors to the east and west.

It is hard to understand why Malone is not a popular tourist destination. In Malone you can see babies pushing baby strollers, drugged up zombies shuffling down the street, tattooed vagabonds with their hats on backwards 12 pack of beer in one hand, pit bull leash in the other, rotten decaying buildings and three large state correctional facilities.

What do you suggest we do to reverse the decay in Malone?

Who do you suggest should take the active role to do it?

Have you taken any active role other than posting in this forum?
