About the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee

Municipalities of five thousand or more must establish a Lodging Tax Advisory Committee. This committee has unique membership requirements. The committee shall consist of at least five members, and membership must include two members who are representatives of businesses required to collect the taxes, two members who are persons involved in activities authorized to be funded by revenue received by the taxes, and one elected official who serves as the Committee Chair.  2 City staff members serve as staff liaison.  Typically, the City appoints 3 hoteliers and 3 non-profit representatives to serve on the Committee.

Lodging Tax Grants

Lodging Tax Fund Grant applications are evaluated by the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee who make funding recommendations to the City Council. City Council makes the final decision on project approval and funding levels.

For fiscal year 2016, the Mukilteo City Council approved over $317,000 in Lodging Tax Grants for such projects as the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival, Chamber of Commerce Tourism Information Center, Classic Car Show, Light Station Mukilteo renovations and Rosehill Community Center marketing.
