Restaurant grants get nod
Wednesday, the Summit County Commission approved a list of Restaurant Tax grants for non-profit groups that attract tourists to town.
The list of grant recipients this year is the longest so far.
More than $1.7 million was generated by the tax in 2007, said Tonja Hanson, chairwoman for the Summit County Restaurant Tax Advisory Committee. A portion of the sales tax paid for prepared food in Summit County goes into the Restaurant Tax coffers, which have existed for 17 years.
