Destination Sheridan PAC
The Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce is in support of the 4% city-wide lodging tax that is paid by guests. We urge you to vote YES! Please read on to learn more:
Sheridan’s 4% city-wide lodging tax will be on the ballot during the General Election this November 8, 2016, and the Destination Sheridan PAC is asking for your support to help renew this valuable proposition.
Sheridan Travel & Tourism efficiently leverages lodging tax funds to unify, inspire and lead the local travel industry in marketing Sheridan, Wyoming as a year-round, individual, meeting, incentive and group destination to both domestic and international markets, in a manner that is consistent with Sheridan’s community values. The lodging tax funds are a driver for sustainable economic growth for the community:
Lodging-tax funds help market, fund and advertise numerous local events; bring in thousands of new visitors each year; attract conferences and events from across the country; manage the top-ranked visitor’s center in Wyoming; and drive tourism job growth throughout the community.
The city-wide lodging tax was first passed in 1992 and subsequently renewed in every election where it appeared on the ballot: 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. Tourism is Wyoming’s second-largest industry and will continue to grow and diversify Sheridan’s economy while helping our community weather the current downturn in the energy industry. Since its renewal in 2012, the city-wide 4% lodging tax has generated $2,236,551 million toward funding events and bringing additional tourist dollars to the Sheridan community.
The city-wide 4% lodging tax is paid by guests staying at Sheridan’s hotels, motels, B&Bs, cottages and RV Parks. It is not paid by Sheridan’s residents.
