July Tax Collections Down For Bars.. imagine that..

July tax collections down for bars
Clearly, something is up, but it's not tax revenue collected by taverns.

The state collected $395,686 in food and beverage taxes from Allen
County bars and restaurants in June, down a whopping 27.8 percent
from the same time last year.

A reasonable person might conclude the decrease had something to
do with the city’s near-absolute public smoking ban, which took
effect June 1. A reasonable person might also expect members of
City Council to show some concern over the
economic hardships their actions may have caused.
