Flagler County is surviving on taxation after hurricane

Published on : Monday, January 1, 2018

Flagler County Flagler County’s tourism development is now looking up to boost tourism after sandwiched with the two hurricanes.

 

 

The total collections of the taxation from motels, campgrounds and vacation rental properties topped $2.2 million for the fiscal year that ended September 30.  6 percent increase over the previous year and a new record for the county, according to Matt Dunn, executive director of the Flagler County Tourist Development Office.

 

 

And with collections in October and November up 38 percent compared to the same period in 2016, the New Year is off to a strong start.

 

 

Dunn said the fiscal 2016-2017 total includes three months of bed-tax collections, which fund tourist development programs, at the 5 percent level after county commissioners in March raised the tax from 4 percent to help fund dune repairs following Hurricane Matthew.
