Ridgecrest City Council to renew assessment tax on lodging businesses to 3%

Published on : Friday, June 16, 2017

download (2)On 7th June, the Ridgecrest City Council at its meeting voted to replenish the Ridgecrest Tourism Improvement District and increase an assessment tax on lodging businesses’ sales (i.e. rooms). The idea is to progress tourism in the area and increase the number of hotel rooms booked locally.

 

The renewal plan is for a three percent tax for tenure of ten years. The renewed RTID is expected to generate approximately $390,000 annually to promote Ridgecrest travel and tourism.

 

The previous RTID dates back to 2012, when it was established for a five-year term from Oct. 1, 2012 through Sept. 30, 2017. The new assessment will be implemented from Oct. 1, 2017 through September 30, 2027.

 

Mayor Peggy Breeden said that she had heard from one party who had questions, but that party did not show up to the council meeting.
