On Tuesday, June 30, at 2PM, the Desert Hot Springs City Council will be discussing Cannabis taxes at a special meeting. Your opinion counts!
The item on the agenda is informational. City staff will present a report, and the Council will listen to public comment. We believe that the Council may consider a change or reduction in taxes, especially the cultivation tax, at a future meeting. However, this is an important step and your voices need to be heard. Attending the meeting virtually, making public comment, or sending a letter or email to the Clerk supports redoing the cannabis tax to ensure that Desert Hot Springs is competitive with other cities in California.
One of the goals of the city of Desert Hot Springs is to be known as a “Business-Friendly City.” On June 30th at 2pm there are 4 cannabis related items on the study session that will be discussed:
