1% Hotel Tax Referendum
January 29th, the City will open the polls and ask the citizens to pass an additional 1% tax on hotel bills (only) to increase the tourism dollars for City promotion by $100,000. To be clear, this increase is paid by those travelers staying in our City hotels - not the citizens of Clinton.
Absentee ballots for the Hotel Tax Election will be available beginning December 17, 2018. The City Clerk's office, 530 Brighton Park Drive, will be open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday except for December 24 & 25, 2018, December 31, 2018 & January 1, 2019, and January 21, 2019 for Absentee voting. The City clerk’s Office will also be open on Saturday January 19 and Saturday January 26, 2019 from 8:00 am till noon for Absentee voting. All persons wanting to vote by absentee ballot must do so by noon on January 26, 2019.
The referendum requires a 60% majority of those voting January 29th.
The city of Clinton is divided into six wards, with an alderman representative for each ward. View our Ward Map to find the Ward in which you reside.
