The city of Ringgold couldn't reach a final decision on its change of how to collect occupational tax from businesses by the end of 2016, but hopes to have a new plan designed by early April.

For the past 20 years or so, Ringgold has been operating under an ordinance that charges businesses a $50 application fee and a $100 occupational tax fee for 20 employees or less. That number climbs to $350 if the business has 100 employees or more, meaning the most any business would pay is $400 for the year.
