Applicants sought for Tourist Development Council

Citrus County, Florida -- The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners is seeking applications for three expiring positions on the Citrus County Tourist Development Council.

The council is responsible for overseeing the spending of bed tax revenue, providing operational oversight for the Citrus County Visitors & Convention Bureau, developing a Tourist Development Plan, and making recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on tourism-related issues.

Six members of the council are persons who are involved in the tourist industry and who have demonstrated an interest in tourist development. Of those six, not less than three or more than four are owners or operators of tourist accommodations in the county and subject to the Tourist Development Tax. One member is a representative from the Board of County Commissioners. Two members are elected municipal officials.

The Tourist Development Council meets at 9 a.m. on the second Wednesday of every month. The regular member positions expires Jan. 31, 2017.

Applicants may be either the owner or operator of a hotel, motel, campground or other property which collects the 3 percent bed tax or an individual interested in tourism development. (Applicants are required to be Citrus County residents and registered to vote in Citrus County.)

Applications will be accepted until Dec. 28. Applications that meet the eligibility requirements will be forwarded to the Board of County Commissioners for evaluation, nomination and selection.

Interested persons should contact Marti Spewock at (352) 628-9305 of the Citrus County Visitors and Convention Bureau for more information.
