The pressure is now off the city officials in Shepherdsville.
To satisfy advisers and those who agreed to lend them money, city officials did what they promised to do.
They raised the occupational tax to 1.5 percent, which means that everyone in the city should be paying and every company must be submitting some funds.
Many of the companies which located to the city were offered abatements of up to 1 percent of the tax for a 10-year period.
Even those companies will now be paying .5 percent.
