Some Cache County residents say they no longer will shop in Logan because its sales tax has increased to fund a citywide transportation system.

A one-quarter of 1 percent local option sales tax went into effect Monday, meaning an additional 25 cents on each $100 purchase.LaMar Clements of Cache Junction led a successful fight in 1988 to defeat a proposal for countywide bus service, but last November Logan residents voted in favor of a city transit system.

Clements said Wednesday he has cut his shopping in Logan by 80 percent and is making purchases in Smithfield and Tremonton, Utah, and Preston, Idaho.

"A lot of other people say they will not shop in Logan because we are being taxed for a service we're getting no benefit from," he said.
