The Burlington Lodging Tax Advisory Committee is accepting applications for 2020 Lodging Tax Funds through August 30, 2019.
The Burlington City Council established a Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) in 1994 to distribute Lodging Tax Funds to organizations that will promote, encourage and increase tourism within the City of Burlington. The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee is represented by Chairperson Edie Edmundson, Burlington City Councilmember; the LTAC consists of seven regular voting members [Three members representing lodging tax generators (hoteliers), three members representing potential recipients of lodging tax funds (non-profit organizations), and a City Council member who serves as chair], plus three non-voting alternate members for a total of ten members whom are appointed by the Burlington City Council. The function of this committee is to review proposed projects/events and recommend to the Burlington City Council which projects should be funded with the Lodging Taxes.
Interested organizations may obtain an application form at the Burlington City Hall, Finance Department, 833 South Spruce Street during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, by clicking here, or you may call 360-755-0531 and request an application be mailed to you. Applications must be returned to City Hall no later than 5:00p.m. on August 30, 2019. Applicants will be required to make an oral presentation of their proposal to the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee in September (date to be announced). The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee funding recommendations are expected to be presented to the City Council in October, 2019.
