4 Percent Tax Increase How ‘Bout No!

Argument Against Tax Increase, Measure P

4% Tax Increase?!!

 City of Trinidad, California — Guest occupancy tax is already at 8%



Argument Against Measure P  

2022 General Election


4% Tax Increase? 

How ‘bout, “No.”


With the highest inflation in decades, and a recession that may lead to a depression, raising taxes and spending is exactly the opposite of what would help our economic crisis.


As reported in our recent budget sessions, the City is sitting on a comfortable reserve, and our City Sales Tax is making up for occupancy taxes and lodging businesses we lost due to the pandemic and restrictions.


Our sales tax was passed with a sunset clause and should have expired a decade ago. It was meant for fire and police. As occupancy taxes were first assessed for supporting tourism-lodging and promotion, these taxes have all been absorbed into the City general fund and spent disproportionately on City expenses and job positions.


It is not a fair increase or a reasonable time to tax our Trinidad guests and visitors more. 


How ‘bout come back to the voters with a 2% increase after we get back to a more stable and sound economy. So maybe it’s not a “No,” but it is a “Not right now.” 


Please support our Trinidad small lodging businesses, their employees and guests, and our community which benefits from our visitors and their stays.

Guests who stayed in the City of Trinidad are due a partial refund of their tax

Guests who stayed in the City of Trinidad are due a partial refund of their tax. 

https://www.times-standard.com/2022/06/17/trinidad-council-moves-on-asking-voters-to-increase-tourist-occupancy-tax

Guests who stayed over the past 3 years are due a partial refund of their hotel (T.O.T) taxes. 

I brought up the unconstitutional City of Trinidad tax increases in January 2022, when the City tried to increase them illegally again. 

The Trinidad Bay Bed and Breakfast Hotel did not comply with their increase, and we demanded they reset the tax to 8%, which is what we collect. It took them months, but they did comply.


NEWS: Eureka Times-Standard
The Trinidad City Council is attempting to legally increase the city’s tourist occupancy tax after years of illegal tax collection resulting from unlawful increases to the tax.

Eligible tourists can contact the city via mail at P.O. Box 390. Trinidad, CA 95570 with the dates they visited the city, the address they want a check mailed to and where they stayed while visiting. From there, the city will contact the business which collected the tax, which will then provide the city receipts from the visit, and the city must calculate how much the tourist was overtaxed before issuing them a check.

TRANSITION? Why would you hide things

TRANSITION?” 

Nothing Should Be Hidden From The People

Why would you hide things that aren’t illegal? 


Discussing and planning our City’s Budget, at Tuesday’s City of Trinidad Council Meeting (June 14, 2022), our city clerk repeatedly mentioned a “Transition” and what he sees as a “plateau” around Q3, October 2022. Not wanting to blindside them, I am expecting a full explanation at our next Budget Meeting.


Also of concern, the city clerk promised 85% of the Budget is finished and the Council, but not the Public, will be getting access to these numbers. Presumably, this would provide an opportunity for their input before publicly presenting the information. Undoubtedly, this would be wrong. Certainly, this would be unethical, and wouldn’t it also be illegal? 


Exactly why we have Brown Act protected Public meetings. 

  1. Councilmen shall hear information together with the Public, publicly
  2. Councilmen then ask questions, receive Public questions and comments.
  3. Councilmen, upon consideration of the information and all the questions and comments, then comment and move actions


If, and however, the city clerk or city manager makes the draft City of Trinidad Budget available to the Council, they best make it available to the Public at the same time — on our City website and emailed to those requesting notification.


The City of Trinidad is so notified.


Sincerely, Mike

Bugaboo of devaluation?

#Truth in my CouncilGuyMike
#TruthSocial Feed 

Recently, we heard silly Steve Madrone was banging on doors to get his opponent’s signs taken down.
πŸ˜‚

Then, we heard silly Steve Madrone got the City Manager and City Clerk to call ‘round. This would be funny too, but we heard about a “bribe” offered?
πŸ’


Larry Doss for Supervisor  

We need truth and transparency in City and County Government, not backroom government deals and small business political abuse.

 Silly Steve Madrone took the City’s covid hysterics and attacks on our local businesses to the County Supervisors — they said he and the City were wrong! He is wrong for Trinidad, wrong for our small businesses, and wrong for our government.




Vote Doss for Supervisor 5th District — Larry has endorsements from three of the five current Supervisors along with former 5th District Supervisors, Ryan Sundberg, and Anna Sparks. Current Sheriff, William Honsal and former Sheriff, Mike Downey also endorse Larry, along with Arcata Professional Firefighters Local 4981 and CalFire Local 2881. 


Hundreds of residents and small businesses across the 5th District & Humboldt County support Larry Doss, please join us!
