This week, Weymouth town councilors could be voting whether or not to impose a local meals tax proposed by Mayor Sue Kay.
The proposal would establish a 0.75 percent tax on restaurant and catered meals. Mayor Kay says the money raised would be used for the town’s parks and athletic fields.
Recently, the town council’s budget management committee voted 3-2 to endorse the tax, which is expected to come up for a vote at Tuesday night’s Council meeting.
The tax would add 75 cents to a $100 restaurant bill.
The local-option meals tax, which has been adopted by more than 160 cities and towns across Massachusetts, was created by the Legislature in 2009.
