Tourism agency pursuing district renewal, assessment increase to better attract tourist to Great Falls

January 1, 2018View for printing

The city's tourism agency is requesting that City Commissioners renew the tourism business improvement district, which is funded by an assessment on lodging facilities in the city.

Great Falls Montana Tourism is also recommending that a tiered structure for the assessment that would maintain the $1 per night for facilities with 30 or fewer rooms and increase the rate per night to $2 for facilities with 31 or more rooms.

The TBID is a 10-year special district and the current one runs through Dec. 31, 2018. The new rate would be effective July 1, 2018, which is the start of the next fiscal year.

Commissioners set a public hearing on the district for Feb. 6.
