  • One member must be a City Council Member serving as Chair
  • Three members must be hoteliers
  • Three members must be representatives of arts, cultural, historic, or business entities that might benefit from a grant of the tax revenue

LTAC Membership Process

When there is an open position on the LTAC, the Tourism Program Administrator requests application(s) for LTAC membership. The City Council interviews and appoints a selected candidate. The City Council interviews the candidate prior to a regular Council meeting, and votes on the candidate’s membership at a subsequent Council meeting. If approved, the candidate becomes an LTAC member.
