The Council-approved TLT Policy establishes a methodology to allocate transient lodging tax dollars in compliance with ORS Sections 320.300 to 320.350 and Albany Municipal Code Chapter 3.14 and in consideration of existing and new programs.
The TLT Policy also establishes a TLT Advisory Committee that will meet on an annual basis and may, from time to time, recommend changes in the allocation methodology or other provisions of the policy to the City Council.
The goal of this policy is to focus expenditures on those activities that promote tourism, economic development, recreational activities, and investments in programs that beautify the community for residents and visitors and that increase the number of overnight stays.
