If you dine out in Elkhart County often, you may be paying a little bit more for your meal in the near future.

County officials and local mayors have met to discuss implementing the tax recently. In fact, they’re all asking state Rep. Dave Ober of Albion to push to make such a tax legal, according to WSBT.

Leaders say that the circuit breaker tax cuts hurt the county’s ability to raise money for improvements as well as Regional Cities matching funds.

There’s no bill filed yet to allow a food and beverage tax in Indiana yet.
