Not in favor of Hotel/Motel Tax renewal

To the Editor:

I’m not in favor of the Hotel-Motel tax the way it’s set up now.

It brings in a lot of money and a good share of it goes to projects that have little to do with bringing in overnight guests. I have no objections to the projects themselves but, if we’re not willing to pay for them ourselves, it doesn’t seem right to make some stranger traveling through on Hwy. 20 pay for them.

If it could be a smaller percentage and award it to activities that do bring in overnight guests, it would seem to me to be more fair.
