ARTESIA SPLIT TAX VOTES: Hotel Tax Wins; Business Liscense Tax Loses
Late votes make it appear to that Measure S (which will more than double the hotel/motel tax from 6% to 12.5%) has been approved by a 50.78% to 49.22% margin.
Voters also defeated Measure Y that would have created a new business liscense fee structure by a slim 9 vote margin.
Very few votes remain to be counted here in Artesia, and another update will be posted on FRIDAY.
