I read where the city has increased the guest tax to help pay for renovations to the former Carnegie Library building in downtown. How much did it increase to?

As part of the 2010 budget, city commissioners agreed to increase the guest tax — which is charged to people who purchase hotel rooms and lodging in the city — from 5 percent to 6 percent. The higher rate will become effective on Jan. 1.
