Sports complex can be built with H-tax
Placeholder Image
The city of Camden can use proceeds from its hospitality tax to fund the construction of a proposed sports complex on the former grounds of Boylan-Haven-Mather Academy. That’s the opinion of Margaret Pope, of Pope Zeigler Law Firm, who has often advised the city on the legal uses of public finances. An oft-cited criticism of Camden City Council’s proposal to construct a sports complex is that hospitality taxes should not be used because it would not be a legal use of such funds -- that it does not meet the criteria of being used for tourist-related activities.
