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, with one City staff member serving as staff liaison. Typically, the City appoints 3 hoteliers and 3 non-profit representatives to serve on the Committee.
