A controversial wage tax for workers in La Grange has been shelved once again.
La Grange City Council members voted 5-3 Monday to postpone a vote on a proposed occupational tax ordinance.
The delay forced council members to rethink the city’s proposed budget for 2013-14. The council rejected it by a 6-2 vote.
The occupational tax had garnered much attention since it was proposed May 6.
More than 100 people showed up for the meeting, most of them outwardly opposed to the tax.
