City council OKs Housing Vision tax agreement

(Continued)

• The council unanimously approved a measure that will allow the city to execute a deal with the owners of the Sheraton at the Falls hotel downtown to set up a police substation for the department's new rangers program. The department will hire college-age people to help tourists downtown and create a larger police presence during the tourist season.

•The council defeated a resolution asking for the allocation of $40,000 to put on a concert on Old Falls Street this August in conjunction with the Hard Rock Cafe. Anderson abstained from the vote while Choolokian and Touma voted no and Walker and Grandinetti voted yes.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
