Essex County considers bed tax increase



“It’s absolutely something we need to pursue,” Scozzafava said. “Let’s see if we can increase the bed tax by another 1 percent.”

The County Finance Committee OK’d seeking the extra 1 percent by unanimous vote. It will have a preliminary vote Tuesday and final vote at the board’s Dec. 4 regular session.

“I’m in support of it,” Board of Supervisors Chair Randy Douglas (D-Jay) said.
