Why DL is asking for food/drink tax
When voters head to the polls in less than two weeks, it's not just representatives they'll be voting on. Detroit Lakes residents will also be voting for or against a 1 percent food and beverage tax.
The tax will generate roughly $225,000 for the city, based on 2007 Department of Revenue numbers. The money is being set aside for four main projects in the city and can only be used for those projects, not the general fund.
