It’s official…the Osage Beach Parks and Recreation Department and the Department of Public Safety are now on the receiving ends of some extra revenue.
The board of aldermen, Thursday, gave second-round approval to the ordinance earmarking an additional three-percent of sales tax imposed, per voter approval, to the sales of adult-use marijuana to the two departments.
In other business Thursday night, the Osage Board of Aldermen also repealed an ordinance giving the city the right from year-to-year to opt out of the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday. Repealing the ordinance, according to Administrator Jeana Woods, was necessary to bring the city in compliance with a revised state law taking away an option for municipalities to opt out of the holiday.
This year’s Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday starts at 12:01 on Friday, August 4th, and runs through Sunday, the 6th.
