To the Editor:
I am writing this requesting your support in voting 'yes' for the hotel/motel tax this fall. This is not a tax on our Hamilton county residents, but a tax that people staying in the motels in our rural areas pay. Our community has benefited greatly with a grant to aid in our fundraising efforts for new Williams roadside signage. The grant came from the hotel/motel tax. The signage welcomes visitors to our community and showcases what we have to offer them in Williams.
The Hemken Collection brings in many visitors and their car museum has benefited from this tax for tourism advertisements and materials to showcase within our County. Please vote "Yes" for the hotel/motel tax when you vote this election.
Cindi Sweedler, Chair
