Five more restaurants in Cincinnati fast food chain to be shuttered due to ‘climate change’
Five new restaurants in the Cincinnati fast-food chain are set to close in coming months due to “climate change” after the city’s newly created City Council voted to impose a $200,000 tax on their sales.
The five restaurants in question are the new “The Iceberg” restaurant, which will close in February 2019, the new Burger King, which opens in October 2020, the Chili’s, which closes in December 2020, and the new Taco Bell, which is set to open in April 2021.
The first four of these restaurants have already closed, and three of them have already been forced to close due to a new regulation that mandates the closing of all restaurant within the city.
The new rule also prevents the use of the term “global warming” to describe the effects of global warming, instead stating that they’re “a result of human activities.”
The City Council has said that they will begin enforcing the new tax on January 15, 2020, which should prevent many of the restaurant owners from continuing operating.
According to a letter from Mayor John Cranley to the Council, the cost of complying with the new regulation is estimated to be $200 million and that the cost to taxpayers could be as much as $3.5 billion.
The letter also stated that “this new tax will also create additional job losses.”
The new rules would be the first time that the City of Cincinnati has levied a new tax in the city, and many of its residents have protested the tax as a violation of their constitutional rights, including the right to free speech.
“This new tax is a tax on the citizens of Cincinnati, which must be used to protect the health of our residents,” Mayor John L. Cranley said in a statement.
“I support the right of the people to speak freely in their communities, but this tax is not one of them.”
The “The Glaciers” restaurant is set for closure in January 2019, and “The Chili’s” will close on November 1, 2020.
“The Chilis” is set up in October 2021, and is slated to open at the same time as “The Burger King.”
The four other restaurants in this chain are slated to close on March 8, 2021, the “Cranley’s Chili’s,” which will be the third restaurant in the chain, will close November 6, 2021 and “Taco Bell” is slated for opening on March 17, 2021.
“Cincinnati is already facing the effects from global warming,” said Chris Mascaro, the owner of “The Chilli’s.”
“The climate change tax is another step in forcing the city to comply with the global warming regulations.”
The restaurant owners who have said that the tax was imposed on them are planning to appeal the decision.
The tax will not apply to all fast food restaurants, and it will not affect all types of fast food such as chicken and burgers.
The “C” word in the tax, however, does mean that the city will charge a $1.50 “tip” tax on all customers, and will be able to collect a $10 tax on “candy or snacks,” a $15 tax on alcohol and a $20 tax on cigarettes.
The restaurants have also said that it will also apply to any type of restaurant that has more than 100 seats, which includes places like the restaurant at the University of Cincinnati.
It is unclear how many people will be affected by the tax.
“We are still working out the details,” said Steve Pender, the president of the City Council.
“There is no guarantee that this will work out well for us.
We’ll be talking to the community and the business owners.”
The Council voted unanimously on January 18 to adopt the new rules, and after the vote, a group of businesses that own more than 500 locations in the City called on the city council to reconsider the tax on February 13.
“If we are going to be taxing people to pay for climate change, why shouldn’t we also be taxing our own citizens?” said Adam Riehl, the chairman of the board of the Cincinnati-based Cincinnati Food Group.
“It is a very obvious example of where our government is taking our citizens and putting them in harm’s way by trying to impose this tax on them.
We will continue to work with the city and continue to push for the repeal of the new rule.”
A representative for the City Attorney’s office told Breitbart News that they are reviewing the Council’s action and will determine how to proceed.
“Our review is focused on the facts of the case and our interpretation of the statute,” said Jennifer Strydom, a spokesperson for the Cincinnati city attorney’s office.
“At this time, we have not yet determined the best course of action.”
The city’s new rule does not affect the restaurants that operate within the City limits, nor do they have to follow the new regulations. However,
