Attention Community Centers and Churches that serve food. Non-profits are being taxed by Health Department if you serve food. To express your views on this attend the Health Dept. meeting on June 14 at noon on the second floor, Wheeling City-County Building.
They say this is a permit to serve food and an inspection goes along with it. I have no problem with the inspections but our small community center can't afford this permit for a steak fry or spaghetti dinner. This permit (another name for tax) is based on how many you can seat. This is on all Ohio County churches and community centers.
To speak at meeting, call Howard Gamble at 304-234-3682 to get on the agenda. We won't have much impact unless a lot of us complain. I know they are fair enough to hear our concerns. Call Sandy Assaro at 304-277-2469 so Sue and I know we won't be by ourselves.
