|Subject:||Option for Fourth Class Counties to Raise the Ceiling of the County Hotel Tax from 3% to 5%|
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation which will amend the County Code to provide counties of the fourth class (populations 145,000 – 209,999) the option to raise the ceiling on hotel room tax from 3% to 5% in order to generate more revenue for tourism promotion.
This legislation will give the County Commissioners in fourth class counties some flexibility in determining how to meet funding needs for tourism promotion.
Introduced as SB838
