The Lodging Tax & Tourism Joint Powers Board is authorized pursuant to Wyoming State Statutes §39-6-412 through 417. The Platte County Lodging Tax Joint powers board was created to provide for the promotion of travel and tourism within Platte County and to administer the expenditure and distribution of lodging sales tax revenues. In 2014 the voters of Platte County approved a 3% lodging tax for the purpose of promoting local travel and tourism, pursuant to Wyoming State Statute §39-15-204(a)(ii). Every four years (2020, 2024, 2028, etc.) at the general election County residents are asked whether to continue that lodging tax, pursuant to §39-15-203(a)(v)(C). The Lodging Tax & Tourism Joint Powers Board consists of five board members. Wheatland, Guernsey, Glendo, Chugwater, and Platte County each appoint a representative to that board.
For more information please read their ByLaws.
The board meets the third Tuesday of each month at 11:00 AM at the Platte County Chamber of Commerce Visitors' Center at 65 16th Street in Wheatland.
