Is this the right time to consider a local tax revenue measure?

Acknowledging the current economic challenges, the City of La Palma has been working with our community to explore all options to maintain City services and protect our quality of life.  Tourism is now bustling again, and we can expect more visitors to our area, using our services and impacting our community.  A potential increase in the transient occupancy tax ensures residents’ taxes remain the same, and only those who stay in hotels or short-term lodging would be assessed this tax.
