There is going to be a debate about the future of tourism spending in Seneca County. It’s not a new debate, but this time, the Seneca County Board of Supervisors seem inclined to look at other options.
Those new options include the money collected by the County from hotels and motels, which charge a percentage that is then used to promote and grow tourism. Since hotels and motels are a vital part of the tourism effort, it is sensible to many that the funding be used for that effort.
In the past, the Board of Supervisors have looked for other ways to utilize parts or all of the funds, but those efforts have largely fallen flat. The Board may have a new chance at exploring other options, though, after a vote at the most recent meeting of the County Economic Development and Tourism Committee.
