March 27th, 2017 Shannon O'Donnell Comments Off on Soda Tax Income Exceeded Expectations in February

The tax, which benefits public schools and community centers, was passed by Mayor Jim Kenney last June and implemented the first day of this year. It applies not just to sodas, as the name implies, but also sweetened teas, milks, juices, and even diet sodas. The tax is at the...Read More
