Lodging tax

Posted: Monday, Nov 5th, 2012

To whom it may concern,

As most of you know, the Town of Pinedale residents will be asked to vote yes or no to renew the lodging tax. I would like to encourage you to vote YES!

The lodging tax is the tax that YOU DONíT PAY! It is a tax that is paid by the visitors of Pinedale that have an overnight stay at any of our fine lodging establishments. That revenue is then used for promotion of our community and all of the great area attractions. This promotion benefits businesses in the hospitality and travel industry, trickles down to the small business community and helps secure our future as a continued destination location. This tax provides matching funds to local organizations, provides discount co-op advertising opportunities to local businesses and maintains visitpinedale.org, which gives local businesses and organizations a web presence that is both attractive and informative.

Please remember that tourism is the front door of non-tourism economic development. I encourage you to vote YES for the renewal of the Pinedale lodging tax.

Sincerely yours,

Joel Bousman,
