“We’re pleased that Teton County residents supported renewal of the Lodging Tax this evening with their votes,” said Residents for a Sustainable Community Chair Tim Harland. “They recognize the important role the Lodging Tax plays in supporting critical government services and community programs, while ensuring visitors continue to pay for their impacts. Area locals are focused on finding solutions to address our challenges, and the Lodging Tax is one of those solutions. We’re very grateful to everyone who supported renewal of the Lodging Tax and to those who helped facilitate an important community conversation.”
