The Jerome Town Council is considering changes in Transaction Privilege Taxes, as follows:

All other existing tax rates would remain the same.
The first reading of an ordinance to effect these changes will be considered by the Jerome Town Council at their regular meeting scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, 2016, in Council chambers at Jerome Town Hall, 600 Clark Street, Jerome, Arizona. The second reading and final adoption of the ordinance, incorporating any changes agreed upon at the first reading, would take place at the regular Council meeting scheduled for 7:00 p.m. on August 9, 2016, also in Council chambers at Jerome Town Hall, 600 Clark Street, Jerome, Arizona.
Changes would become effective as of November 1, 2016.
