City Council Agenda
Meeting Date: 08/13/2013  
Subject:    Appointments to the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee
Presenter: Mayor Hansen
Department: City Council  

Recommended Action
Approve a resolution appointing members to the Lodging Tax Advisory Committee.
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.

A resolution appointing a third hotelier to the committee will be brought to Council at a later date.
Previous Actions (Discussions/Presentations)
The City of Puyallup established a lodging tax advisory committee in 1997 pursuant to authority granted in RCW 67.28.1817, via Resolution No. 1391. The LTAC reviews applications submitted for lodging tax funding, and recommends grant awards to the Council as part of each year's budget process. 
Summary of Proposal
In accordance with RCW 67.28 and PMC 2.14, Mayor Hansen recommends confirmation of the LTAC membership as shown on the attached resolution.
