While this tax is, without a doubt, the most misunderstood tax, the impact on individual households will be virtually nonexistent.

On Monday, April 27, Governor Parsons in an address to the State of Missouri outlined his plan to reopen Missouri's businesses and to begin to bring Missouri back to some sense of normalcy. Phase 1 of his plan is to lift the stay at home order effective Monday, May 4, 2020. At this time businesses will be able to reopen, and people will begin to return to work.
Governor Mike Parsons has ordered that all gatherings of more than 10 people are no longer allowed, and it is recommended to maintain a social distance of 6 feet between individuals. If these measures cannot be followed and the virus continues to spread, the County Health Dept. will have no choice but to issue a shelter in place order.
During these trying times, we all must work together for one common goal “Life Safety”. Nothing is more precious than life itself. The Community Development Department of the City of Park Hills is charged with providing its citizens and visitors with that life safety on a daily basis.
