Ione Talks TOT

The Ione City Council worked on a number of administrative items at its meeting last night. The Council heard a report on the City's transit occupancy tax, which is collected on hotel room stays. While the tax makes up a substantial portion of the budget of other cities in Amador County, Ione collects only $2,100 per year. The audit identified only two establishments in town eligible for the tax and concluded that Ione Hotel was not documenting its receipts and could have under-paid the city as much as $65,000 over the last three years. The Council approved a contract for the city's hearing officer to attorney Gary Cassel. Cassel will hear appeals on the city's code enforcement actions. The Council also approved a new emergency generator for the city's sewer plant for a bit over $30,000. The Council also declared the old generator surplus and for sale, so if anyone is interested in buying a generator that may or may not work and doesn't meet California air quality regulations, please contact Ione City Hall.
