Development Corp. Objects To Change In Use Of Sales Tax Money

The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp. is objecting to a change in how Jamestown city sales tax money is used.

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corp.

is objecting to a change in how Jamestown city sales tax money is

used.

The Jamestown City Council last month decided to use half of the

proceeds from the 1 percent tax for infrastructure improvements,

starting March 1. The sales tax had been used exclusively for

economic development.

The economic development group says the change amounts to

"grand theft." It plans to circulate a petition to put the matter

before voters.
