Borough assembly discusses fish box tax on fish charter customers
April 4, 2019
At an assembly meeting on Monday, members of the borough assembly discussed the possibility of instituting a fish box tax on fish charter customers who leave Petersburg with boxes of locally caught fish.
The discussion topic was requested by assembly member Jeff Meucci who stated that a fish box tax wouldn't be charged to locals who wanted to take boxes of fish down south with them.
"The idea here is to charge a fee for folks who come to town and off load 20 or 30 boxes of fish and take it to the airport," said Meucci. "Just some type of fee to help the community out."
