City of Phoenix Receives Few Public Comments At Meetings On Food Tax
For as much rancor as Phoenix’s temporary food tax has generated, public hearings on the issue have not been well-attended. As of Wednesday afternoon, the city had received 14 public comments over the course of nine meetings. At four of those meetings, nobody showed up.
The final public hearing is Thursday night. The full city council is set on October 16 to debate whether it should cut the 2 percent tax in half.
