New Business Board In Pierre To Meet For First Time

New Business Board In Pierre To Meet For First Time

A new business board in Pierre tasked with implementing a proposed occupancy tax involving the city's lodging industry is expected to meet for the first time Monday.

The Business Improvement District board was created as part of the city's effort to set a $2 per person per day per hotel room fee.

Officials have said the fee could generate a minimum of $300,000 a year.

Voters are expected to vote on the occupancy tax proposal in the June 3 election. Should it be approved, the board would determine how to use the revenue.

Officials have suggested using the money to upgrade public facilities such as fields and parks, as well as in marketing and event promotion.

Mayor Laurie Gill appointed the board's seven members.
