Lodging Association to look at window sign issue

by staff

The South Lake Tahoe Lodging Association will consider an amendment to its by-laws during a general membership meeting on Thursday.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at Embassy Suites Resort.

The proposed amendment is the result of an effort last year, spearheaded by the now disbanded East Indian Association, to encourage lodging owners to remove price signs from their windows.

They considered the signs unsightly and felt it forced price wars that left lodging owners unable to make a living and maintain their properties.

The effort drew the attention of the Federal Trade Commission. The commission reprimanded the Lodging Association for its endorsement of the effort, which the it considered unfair trade restrictions.

The Lodging Association agreed to steer clear of the issue and to amend its by-laws to ensure future compliance.

In other business, the Lodging Association will hear reports on American Skiing Company’s redevelopment plans, the 1999 Lake Tahoe Marathon, and the Lake Tahoe Airport.
