New city sales tax

I believe that there is some room for persons to ask for reconsideration of the 2nd reading of the new sales tax that the City of Ketchikan recently passed. It is my understanding that one of the YES votes must request it. Since Councilmember Harris was out of town on City business, he could then be included on a reconsideration vote. This would eliminate the need of a tie-breaker by the Mayor. I encourage those of you who have questions or would like to move for reconsideration to contact your council members and/or your City Mayor. Important stuff. Speak up.
