The Council meets at 1:30 p.m., the third Monday of every month, in the County Auditorium. The Tourist Development Council is comprised of nine members appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. Three (3) are elected officials including the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, or their designee, and two elected municipal officials, one of which must be from the County’s most populous municipality. Up to four (4) members (but not less than 3 members) are owner/operators of tourist accommodations which are subject to bed tax.
