Grassroots: Visitor Tax proposal with Cristy Morrison and Chris Norris

Grassroots: Visitor Tax proposal with Cristy Morrison and Chris Norris

Stillwater, home of Oklahoma State University, is inherently a destination town. Every year visitors make a significant impact on the city’s economy. Cristy Morrison and Chris Norris of Visit Stillwater join Chris and Michelle to discuss why Stillwater should consider raising the Visitor’s tax (formerly known as the hotel/lodging tax) from 4% to 7%. What the additional revenue will bring, and how we can improve our quality of life amenities by making visitors pay a little more while they are here.

Remember to vote on Feb. 8.
