Lodging Tax Advisory Committee

The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) consists of nine members, appointed by the City Council. It was established in accordance with state law to advise and recommend to the County and Mayor how excise taxes on lodging collected in Gig Harbor should be allocated in order to best increase tourism in the city. One member is an elected official of the City who serves as chair, four members are representatives of businesses required to collect the tax, and four members are persons involved in activities authorized to be funded by revenue received from the tax. Vacancies on the committee are filled by the City Council.
