Chamber will look at wedding fee-hike proposal

The Tahoe-Douglas Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors on Tuesday will get a heads-up overview of a wedding industry proposal.

The chamber meeting begins at 8 a.m. at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe Convention Center.

The Lake Tahoe Wedding & Honeymoon Association will ask for the chamber’s support for a proposed bill to raise wedding license fees by $12 in Douglas County with the additional revenue to be used to promote weddings at Lake Tahoe.

The Nevada bill, which must be approved by the Legislature, would allow but not require any county in the state to implement the fee increase.

A similar bill is being developed for California.

In light of a decline in the number of wedding licenses issued at the lake on both sides of the state line, the wedding association has been seeking ways and funds to increase promotion of the industry.

Attorney Dennis Crabb will discuss the proposed bill with the chamber.

In other business, the chamber nominating committee will release its list of nominations for the board of directors election in March. Additional nominations will be accepted until the end of the month.

Ballots will be mailed out in mid-February and returned by March.

The board will also hear a variety reports from organizations with activities of interest to the business community.
