Jackson Hole voters may get to decide whether to impose a sales tax on valley hotel rooms in November. During a joint meeting this past week, the Jackson Town Council and Teton County Board of Commissioners asked staff to draft a
ballot question for their review in August. Councilors and
commissioners also will review a proposed structure for the board that would oversee the expenditure of funds collected through the tax. Leaders must send ballot language to the Teton County clerk by Aug. 23.If the tax is approved, Jackson Hole voters would asked whether they want to tax hotel rooms to generate funds mostly for promotion but also to offset tourist impacts and provide services.
