Group fighting nickel gas tax


Published:

LAND O’ LAKES — Pasco’s six municipalities would get a share of the county’s higher gas tax, but city and town leaders don’t want county commissioners to adopt the higher tax.

The Municipal Association of Pasco County called an emergency meeting last week and debated the proposed Second Local Option Fuel Tax that would add a nickel per gallon for unleaded gas.

They voted to oppose the tax and will present a resolution during the public hearing at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Dade City.

The association had recently disagreed with the County Commission about the calculation method used to distribute the First Local Option (6-cent) Fuel Tax.
