For the third time, residents of Cohasset shot down a local-option meals and hotel tax.
At Monday night’s annual town meeting, residents said no to a 0.75 percent tax on the sales of restaurant, catered and prepared meals and a 6 percent excise tax on hotel and motel stays in Cohasset.
Voters did approve amendments to the Town Manager’s Act, but after considerable debate.
The intent of the amendments was to clarify the duties of the town manager and the selectmen.
Voters approved the amendments 223-141.
The amendments still need to go to the Legislature for a vote before they can be implemented.
Residents also voted to approve an amendment to a zoning bylaw to impose a temporary moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.
