The City of Cadiz’s restaurant tax officially took effect on Monday, July 1, but the Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist Commission likely won’t see any revenue from it until September.

That is what Bill Stevens, executive director of the Cadiz/Trigg County Tourist and Convention, said earlier this week. While he couldn’t say how much the first restaurant tax payment might be, he doesn’t think that the new tax – a 3-percent tax on the sale of prepared food within the city limits – will hurt sales.

“From out here in our standpoint, the restaurants have been as busy as ever,” Stevens said. “I haven’t had any kind of reports that business has declined or anything. Of course, this is peak travel season, so it is a great time of the year for the businesses.”

Stevens said Cadiz City Clerk Lisa Rogers and her staff are trying to work out collection of the restaurant tax, but they won’t know how much the first payment will be until they get it.
