(Continued)

SARANAC LAKE —

Jim Murnane, owner of Best Western Mountain Lake Inn, said the marketing funding raised through bed tax “has been incredibly beneficial, and I don’t see how Franklin County can say no to this.”

He said the few complaints he has heard are from places that plan larger tour groups, but most customers realize “it’s the cost of doing business, and they expect it. They’re not put off by it at all.”
