Board Of County Commissioners

Lodging Tax Advisory Committee

Lodging Tax Advisory Committee

The Chelan County Lodging Tax Advisory Committee was established by resolution No. 97-151 on Dec. 1, 1997, and re-established on Jan. 27, 2014, by resolution 2014-11; and the Chelan County Promotions Committee was established on Jan. 27, 2014, by resolution No. 2014-12 to coordinate the Visit Chelan County campaign. The Board of County Commissioners determined these two committees should be revitalized and has combined their efforts.

RCW 67.28.1817 states commissioners have the authority to appoint members of a Lodging Tax Advisory Committee in equal number between revenue-generating businesses and organizations funded by the tax revenue. The committee's chairman must be an elected official.


News & Announcements

New! 2023 lodging tax dollar allocations will be announced in late December. LTAC continues to review the 2023 applications for lodging tax dollars. The application period is closed. Watch for an announcement of the awards at the end of December. Please remember this is not the application period related to capital projects. A call for capital projects is expected this winter.


Committee Members

The vision of LTAC is to elevate Chelan County into the premier destination for travelers in the Pacific Northwest. Its mission is to enhance, protect and promote Chelan County’s tourism industry for generations to come. Resolution 2021-72 establishes the board members and their terms.
