Eastham's Rental Tax for 2011

I went to the Town Clerk's office at the Eastham town hall a few weeks ago to ask about rental taxes for the 2011 rental season. (Background - see my 5/4/2010 blog entry) The Town Clerk told me that the tax has not yet been approved by the State legislature and, therefore, was very unlikely to take effect for the 2011 season. She also indicated that they, currently, have no plan to collect the taxes for 2011. I also spoke to an Eastham rental agent about this. She said that all rents have been established and many rental weeks have been reserved, making collecting additional taxes nearly impossible. My hope is that this tax can again be on the Town Meeting warrant and voted down, this time.
