Do you have a Fairgrounds in your area? Do they receive lodging taxes? Do the activities and programs implemented by your local Fair Board / Fairground draw out of town visitors? How well does your organization work with your local Fair? What percent of the lodging taxes is your local Fair Board receiving?
The lead story in yesterday’s local paper is this: Our local Fair Board is not happy with how the county allocates Transient Lodging Taxes, and will be suing the County (the very hand that feeds them) because the Fair Board believes it is getting short changed.
