That slice of pizza for lunch could get a little bit more expensive if town meeting voters decide to impose a local meals tax in Duxbury.
Article 13 on the annual Town Meeting warrant proposes that residents adopt the state law that allows cities and towns to collect an excise of .75 percent on the sales of restaurant meals originating within the town. On a restaurant bill of $100, the tax would be 75 cents.
The Massachusetts Department of Revenue estimates that Duxbury would collect an additional $94,000 per year if it adopts the tax. Finance Director John Madden is proposing the article.
