Want a Share of Springfield's Hotel-Motel Tax? This Meeting's For You


Any organization interested in receiving a share of Springfield's hotel-motel tax revenues originally dedicated to Wonders of Wildlife is invited to a meeting in May.

WOW terminated its grant agreement in 2011 and agreed to forego receipt of all hotel-motel tax proceeds after the termination date.

City Council then authorized 60% of those funds to go to qualifying organizations.

The Hotel/Motel Tax Reallocation Committee will hold a Q & A Session Wednesday, May 6th at 4:30 pm at the Creamery Arts Center.

According to the City of Springfield, the funds are available for capital grants to Springfield not-for-profit organizations that promote tourism, recreation, education and the local economy.
