Panel wants conference center money spent elsewhere
PORT ANGELES -- A city committee is recommending the city release $100,000 in bed taxes being reserved for marketing the Oak Street hotel and conference center to promote tourism, including ``Art on the Town.''
The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee made the recommendation to the City Council on Thursday morning.
``Some new events this fall could use more marketing,'' said committee member Bob Harbick, owner of Five Seasuns Bed & Breakfast.
Harbick said the events need to be built up this fall to make up for a slow spring. He noted events planned for October include History Weekend, Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival and the Strait Thunder Hydroplane Race.
