The Occupancy Tax Board is a five-member volunteer advisory board that consists of two members who are owners or operators of lodgings subject to the occupancy tax within the municipality, two members who are owners or operators of industries located within the municipality that primarily provide services or products to tourists and one member who is a resident of the municipality and represents the general public.
The Occupancy Tax Board makes recommendations to the Finance Committee on Lodgers' Tax Funding Requests received by the city. Requests are submitted by organizers of events seeking lodgers' tax dollars for partial reimbursement of marketing expenses to attract out-of-town visitors.
