2012: Accommodations Tax Committee


Accommodations Tax Program Overview

Steamboat City Council has selected a group of six persons to review potential uses of future accommodations tax dollars and to make a recommendation to Council on best use of the dollars.  The committee is made up of three members of the lodging community, two council persons and one citizen-at-large.  The committee has determined to:

  1. Solicit two-page ideas from the public. DONE! - We are past this step.
  2. Invite those who present ideas that meet the accommodations tax ballot language requirements to submit a proposal as described herein.  (The RFP process.) DONE! - We are past this step.
  3. Invite the most compelling applicants to present their idea in a public venue. DONE! - We are past this step.
  4. Presentations will be March 20th & 21st. DONE! - We are past this step.
  5. Accommodations Tax Committee makes recommendation to City Council. DONE! - The committee selected the trails proposal.
If you are receiving this Request for Proposal (RFP) it is because your idea meets the requirements of the ballot language and the Committee would like to explore your idea in more detail.  You are invited to complete this RFP, providing information in all cases where required, and submit the finished proposal to the City Clerk, Julie Franklin at 137 10th Street or PO Box 775088, Steamboat Springs, Colorado  80477-5088.
