Robert Cairns in the Watershed Post reports that Delaware County Economic Development Director Glenn Nealis said in Delhi Oct. 5 that on Oct. 14 Delaware County supervisors will consider a two-percent hotel occupancy tax with a public hearing likely Oct. 28. The tax would go to tourism promotion. Delaware County currently spends $95,000 per year on tourism, with some neighboring counties spending ten times as much. With $9.7 million spent on lodging in 2012, the county would receive $192,000 if the "bed tax" was in effect. Read the full story in the Watershed Post.
