City to Hold Workshop on Additional Harbor Businesses Tax Hikes

CITY WORKSHOP FOR NEXT WAVE OF HARBOR TAX INCREASES
Wednesday, October 31st
3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m
Newport Beach City Hall

Just like General Sherman’s March to the Sea in November 1864, the Newport Beach city council is rolling through the Harbor to tax anything that moves, makes a profit, or might someday make a profit.  They are not stopping with the 300% mooring tax hike, or the 447% commercial marina tax increase.

If you know anyone with a Harbor restaurant, charter business, fuel dock, boat rental operation, or any marine supporting businesses please forward this notice to them.  The chart below was provided by city manager Dave Kiff as the starting point for the tax increase discussions.

I believe they are intentionally holding this workshop on Halloween to depress turnout.  It is in everyone’s interest to attend.
