City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 09/03/2013  
Subject:    Resolution appointing Cheryl Mamiya to the LTAC
Presenter: Mayor Hansen
Department: City Council  

Recommended Action
Approve a resolution appointing Cheryul Mamiya to the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC).
The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee is made up of seven members: an elected official, three representatives of organizations which receive lodging tax funds ("recipients"), and three representatives of businesses which must collect the tax ("hoteliers").

The committee has a current hotelier vacancy due to the resignation of Phil DeLong, who is no longer with the Fairfield Inn. (Chuck Valley previously represented the Best Western and now represents the Fairfield Inn.)
Previous Actions (Discussions/Presentations)
The LTAC membership is reviewed annually and appointments made as needed.
Summary of Proposal
In accordance with RCW 67.28 and PMC 2.14, Mayor Hansen recommends that the City Council appoint Cheryl Mamiya, representing the Hampton Inn & Suites, as the third Puyallup hotelier on the LTAC.
Alternatives before Council include not making this appointment, or deferring it to a later date.

The next LTAC meeting has been scheduled for the second week of September, however, and the committee is expected to formulate funding recommendations for 2014 at that time. If possible, it would be preferable to have a full membership of LTAC as the applications and potential appropriations are reviewed and discussed.
