Mayor: Tax hike unethical

City of Las Vegas officials are urging San Miguel County to reconsider its plan to increase the gross receipts tax throughout the county by a quarter cent.

The issue took center stage at a special City Council meeting on Wednesday where County Manager Les Montoya and county Finance Supervisor Melinda Gonzales discussed the planned increase with city leaders. San Miguel County commissioners had also been invited to attend the meeting but were unable to make it.
