To the Editor:
On Monday, the Lake City City Council formally recognized Lake City Tourism Bureau Inc. as the primary administrator of the Lake City Lodging Tax.
The mission of LCTB is to administer lodging tax funds to promote the community as a tourist destination and increase the economic impact of tourism dollars spent in our community.
In an effort to support all valid promotional ideas and efforts throughout the community, we encourage tourism stakeholders to become involved in LCTB. The first general membership meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. July 8 at the AmericInn in Lake City. All tourism-related businesses and interested parties are encouraged to attend.
The board of directors will be voted upon at the meeting. Three of the members will be chosen from licensed lodging establishments and three will be chosen from general membership. The initial board will be nominated from the floor by members present at this general meeting.
The board will choose an additional non-voting government relations representative to represent LCTB at City Council and other meetings.
A LCTB membership application and paid membership fee will authorize official vote at the meeting. Applications can be requested by phone at (877) 525-3248 or downloaded and printed from www.lakecity
Completed applications can be presented at the July 8 meeting.
We encourage all interested people to consider this opportunity and join us in our efforts to improve the future economic impact that increased tourism business can bring to Lake City.
