Lodging Tax Advisory Committee

The Lodging Tax Advisory Committee (LTAC) is responsible for:

  • supporting options to enhance tourism activities in Redmond;
  • making recommendations on special events matching grants to the City Council and later reviewing the success of those completed events;
  • reviewing proposals from the marketing consultant; and
  • proposing changes to the Tourism Promotion Program.
Meetings LTAC meetings are held quarterly, or as needed. Meetings typically are located at Redmond City Hall.


The LTAC consists of seven members nominated by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. 
  • One member must be a City Councilmember serving as Chair
  • Three members must be hoteliers
  • Three members must be representatives of arts, cultural, historic, or business entities that might benefit from a grant of the tax revenue

LTAC Membership Process
When there is an open position on the LTAC, the Tourism Program Administrator requests application(s) for LTAC membership. The Mayor interviews a selected candidate and makes a recommendation on the candidate's membership to the City Council. The City Council interviews the candidate prior to a regular Council meeting, and votes on the candidate's membership at a subsequent Council meeting. If approved, the candidate becomes an LTAC member.
