Douglas County set to dole out TOT

Michael Schneider

Douglas Commissioners are poised to support two Lake Tahoe organizations charged with promoting the lake’s tourism industry.

Both the Lake Tahoe Visitor’s Authority and Tahoe Douglas Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center are slated to receive county funds today.

The LTVA is to be allocated 2 and 5/8 percent of the transient occupancy taxes collected in the Tahoe Township of Douglas County.

The funds, this fiscal year totaling more than $1.6 million, are required by state law to be used for tourism promotion. These were allocated to the LTVA in the commission-approved final county budget, according to County Manager Dan Holler.

The Chamber is scheduled to be granted a one-time allocation of $124,00 from the county’s room tax fund.

Douglas Commissioner Don Miner said he doesn’t expect any commission opposition.

He said the allocations were debated before the commission approved the final county budget May 18 and today’s action is merely an official resolution cementing what was debated and resolved.

The commission also allocated $124,000 to the Tahoe Douglas Chamber in its final budget for the fiscal year of 1998-99.

Who: Douglas County Board of Commissioners

Where: Douglas County Administration Building, 1616 Eighth Street, Minden

When: 1 p.m., today
