Coffee City has no property taxes, and only one real source of income…alcohol. But if Tyler ever goes wet, they become another Big Sandy.
So, at last month’s council meeting, a property tax was discussed.
And that led to the formation of Concerned Citizens for Coffee City.
Mayor Tony Moore says there won’t be a property tax vote, or any tax while he’s mayor. The Concerned Citizens worry about what comes after that.
To hear the exchanges between the Mayor, City Councilman Gage Guinn and members of Concerned Citizens for Coffee City, watch the video.
