New Opposition to JC Conference Center

Posted by Warren Krech on September 20, 2013

A new Jefferson City group wants you to re-think the conference center concept. The “Citizens against Convention Center Committee” plans to circulate two petitions. One that would do away with the 4% lodging tax ordinance and would bar the city from dedicating any public money to the center. The other proposal would eliminate the city funding, but leave the lodging tax on the books.

Two proposals are before the Jefferson City Council. One would build the center downtown, the other would put it out west near the Capital Mall.

Group spokesman Tim Stallman says voters were “sold a pig in a poke” in regard to the lodging tax. City leaders claim the tax would provide about $9 million to the chosen developer.
