The price of a Friday night beer is likely to increase in the future if bar and restaurant owners pass the cost of a new city occupation tax down to consumers.
The city council adopted a new ordinance Monday night doubling the cost of a liquor license for businesses selling or serving alcoholic beverages in the city limits.
The occupation tax was created to raise revenue for the general fund of the city.
Currently, the city collects only the state portion which is remitted to the school district.
The new tax will double the current cost paid for a state license.
