Letter - Vote yes on B3

Posted

Ballot issue B3 — Yes for Littleton — on the Nov. 8 ballot will be a win-win for our whole community.

The question, which was unanimously forwarded to the voters by the city council, would establish a 5% lodger’s tax on people staying in Littleton hotels or B&Bs for fewer than 28 days. The tax would be paid completely by people from outside of Littleton and would provide almost $1 million per year for arts, culture and tourism in our community.

A percentage each year would be for the Town Hall Arts Center, Bemis Public Library, Littleton Museum and Hudson Gardens — big venues that help draw visitors to Littleton. Another percentage would support the many smaller arts groups in the community, while another percentage would go to the promotion of tourism, which brings in sales tax dollars as tourists shop and eat in our historic downtown.

I strongly recommend a yes vote on ballot issue B3!
