The ‘Don’t Pack a Pest’ initiative is another feather in the cap for the TCI as executives in the Ministry and the TCIAA were commended for swift action on providing the requisite information so that the program could be implemented. Work on the ‘Don’t pack a Pest’ started as a concept in 2011, but more vigorously as a standard of safety in the TCI earlier this year. It is said the outreach initiative was established in record time.

first_img“I promise that myself, and a number of people in the lodging industry will support a campaign for a half a percent sales tax increase in lieu of a bed tax.” Cooper has introduced an ordinance that would increase the sales tax rate, from 3 percent to 3.5 percent, in lieu of the bed tax. “I believe that 6 percent bed tax, which would make our tax here in Homer 13.5 percent, would encourage people to stay outside of Homer.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly vetoed the ‘bed tax’ ordinance going to the voters in the upcoming regular election, in a close vote of 5 to 4, at their bi-weekly assembly meeting last night. Assemblywoman Kelly Cooper: “When we talk about the bed tax not affecting us locally, it darn sure does.” Assemblyman Willy Dunne: “We’ve heard a lot of people testify tonight against the bed tax, and I have also heard a lot of people in favor of it. It’s not an easy issue.” During public testimony the assembly heard from residents and accommodation managers throughout the Kenai Peninsula regarding their stance on either a bed tax or a proposed increase in sales tax. The general response was split 50/50 in support and against each of the proposed taxes. Public testimony comments: “We believe that increasing and actually more than doubling our tax structure for the hotel industry will be detrimental to our industry.” Yes votes were cast by; Dunne, Bagley, Hibbert, and Smalley. Assemblyman Dale Bagley introduced the ordinance last year in hopes of offsetting ‘some’ of the boroughs deficit. A public hearing is set for April 3 on the proposed sales tax increase.
