The Grayson Tourism and Convention Commission has proposed to the City Council that it enact a 3% restaurant tax. The proposal was presented to City Council at Wednesday night's meeting by Commission Chairman Ken Beck. Based on a 2006 state study, Beck said the tax could bring in $450,000. Of that amount, 50% could be used for the development of parks, 40% could go to develop businesses that could bring in tourists, and 10% would be for administration. A public hearing will be held- possibly in October- and the council will decide.
