“Tourism is the only thing Franklin County has.”
The county estimates it could generate $300,000 to $400,000 a year in bed tax and use it for tourism instead of funding its promotion by property-tax dollars.
How it would be spent would be decided according to recommendations from a tourism-advisory committee legislators created but have not yet filled.
Jones said decisions on who serves will be made soon so the committee can begin its work whether the bed tax is approved in Albany or not.
