Patrons of the CenturyLink Center could soon be paying more for tickets purchased for events and concerts.

In a meeting on Tuesday, Bossier City Council members introduced an ordinance that would place a $5 tax on every ticket sold.

According to the proposal, the funds raised from the tax will go back to the city.

The ordinance was introduced by councilman David Montgomery.

It states in part - "The city of Bossier City is the owner of the CenturyLink, and capital needs related to the CenturyLink Center facility are increasing as the building and systems age... This assessment will assist with capital cost related to the CenturyLink center."

The fee will apply to all tickets sold at the center.

The proposal was approved 5-2 and will go on to a second reading at their next council meeting on Tuesday, May 2.
