Posted: 2018-10-29 11:21:41 By: hbr

Huntsville council meets tonight and will hear a report from staff on the new Municipal Accommodation Tax.  The new tax, if accepted by the town  would charge  a percentage to all rooms being booked in the municipality whether at hotels, motels, B&B's and other accommodators.

The rate has not been set, but other jurisdictions are taxing at 4% in addition to HST.

The town would use 30% of the funds collected to be spent on future Tourism and Economic Development related projects.

The meeting takes place at 7pm, inside council chambers.
