Paso Robles City Council approves renewal of hotel tax 

travel pasoThe Paso Robles City Council this week voted to renew its business improvement district tax. It’s a fee that is added to the hotel bills of visitors.

The city says the 2-percent tax will bring in around $700,000 a year. The money will be used to help the city’s marketing programs attract more visitors. City officials say since the year 2000 the number of hotel rooms has doubled and lodging tax revenues have grown by 500 percent.

The Business Improvement District that collects the funds was requested by Paso Robles hoteliers, according to a city report. The funds are spent by the Travel Paso Robles Alliance.
