Vacancies open on TDC

Applications are being accepted for three openings on the Manatee County Tourist Development Council (TDC).

The TDC is comprised of nine members who make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners on expenditures of tourist tax revenues for tourism-related projects.

The TDC is seeking one member who is an owner/operator (general manager) of a motel, hotel, recreational vehicle park or other tourist accommodation in the county who is subject to the 5 percent county resort tax.

Another two seats are available for applicants who are involved in the tourism industry and who have demonstrated an interest in tourist development but are not subject to the 5 percent county resort tax.

All applicants must be registered voters in Manatee County.

The hotelier term expires June 30, 2021; the interested citizen terms expire June 30, 2022.

Applications are due by July 17 and may be found online.

The TDC meets on the third Monday of every other month at 9 a.m. at various locations throughout the county.
