Bed taxes rising, TDC council seeks to keep eye on ball

Warriner, who has served in the past with the Chamber of Commerce, an EDC advisory council and the TDC, said the duties of the EDC are “voluminous” and “distracting” and added, “There is a difference between collaboration and cohabitation.”

Warriner said Novak should pass along concerns expressed by the TDC board about the EDC proposal and its impacts on the tourism agency and said board members would be vigilant of those impacts.

“We are concerned,” Warriner said. “This is a crucial time for us.”

Bed taxes up

Bed taxes in April spiked 11.03 percent compared to the same month last year, during which an increase of 11.79 was on the books.

Jenkins said the growth in April year-to-year indicated there was still room to grow the month.

“We have room to stay strong and steady in April,” Jenkins said. “We can do more to fill capacity.”
