City could seek damages from Htax lawsuit
Placeholder Image
The city of Camden could seek damages for any delays caused by a legal action attempting to prevent the use of hospitality taxes to construct a proposed sports complex on the former site of Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy. In mid-January, Camden resident Herbert Farber, on behalf of himself and as a board member of the Camden Committee for Responsible Government (CCRG), sought an injunction stopping the city from using hospitality tax funds to construct the complex. Farber and the CCRG claimed that while state code allowed the city to impose its 2-percent hospitality tax, it is illegal to use those funds to construct the sports complex.
