(BLOOMFIELD) - Greene County officials voted to implement a 5 percent Innkeeper's Tax at the beginning of 2018.

The new ordinance will place a tax on individuals staying at Greene County hotels, motels, inns and bed and breakfast establishments.

The goal of the tax is to raise funds to help promote tourism opportunities in Greene County.

The next step is to appoint a Convention, Visitors and Tourism Commission - which will serve as the governing board, overseeing the budget and request for funds.

The Commissioners and the County Council will appoint two members each to the newly-created commission. Per state statute, the Mayor of Linton will also have an appointment to the board as the city is the largest municipality in the county.
Members of the commission must also include an individual engaged in convention, visitor or tourism business; an individual involved in promoting convention, visitor or tourism business; and two innkeepers.

The ordinance states the appointments are for terms of three years.
