Just last week I wrote about a proposed city tax that threatened the promoters of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival to find a new venue.
The threat is gone, for now.
The Indio’s Desert Dun reports City Council member Sam Torres has suspended the effort to impose an admissions tax.
Indio City officials are looking to reach a long-term agreement with Goldenvoice, the Coachella event promoter. I’d be hesitant as a promoter to commit to staying in Indio unless there are assurances that any admissions taxes enacted after the date of the agreement do not apply to the agreement.
