Tupper Lake owners oppose bed tax



According to the legislature’s draft law, at least one committee member must be from Tupper Lake and one from Saranac Lake.

The nine would include representatives from accommodations (two seats) and one each from an attraction, recreation venue, retail/restaurants, camping and a vacation-rental such as a bed-and-breakfast, cottage, inn, condominium or tourist home, as well as two at-large members possible with experience in marketing and promotion.

Doolen said someone from the camping industry could serve a longer term than an accommodations owner, for example.


Legislators have a final bed-tax public hearing set for 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the fourth-floor Legislative Chambers of the County Courthouse in Malone.
