One last chance to learn about the Lodging Tax tonight

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Heard a lot of different things about the lodging tax? Not sure who or what to believe?

The Town of Jackson and Teton County will host one last informational public open house Thursday, November 1 at the Teton County Library from 5:30-8 p.m. in the Ordway Auditorium.

Teton County and Town of Jackson representatives will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss how Lodging Tax revenue is utilized in County and Town budgets, with a general focus on Parks & Recreation, Fire/EMS, START Bus, and Community Pathways.

The open house will be drop-in format, with no formal program or presentation. Educational brochures will be available for all attendees.

“We want to provide opportunities for citizens to understand how the County utilizes Lodging Tax funding, and we feel that it is important to provide access to County representatives that can provide details related to Lodging Tax budgets,” said Alyssa Watkins, Teton County Commissioners’ Administrator. “The County’s duty is to provide transparent, educational information about these revenues and expenditures, and we’re committed to doing that.”

Town of Jackson Manager, Larry Pardee, added, “Since 2010 the Lodging Tax has been a source of revenue for our organization. These open houses will be a wonderful opportunity for community members to learn more about how these funds are used at the local level.”

All registered Teton County voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballot either for or against the renewal of the Lodging Tax in the general election being held on November 6, 2018.
