The City Council reviewed an earlier version of this agenda at a workshop on November 8, 2018, and this version was presented for discussion with 19th District legislators at a dinner meeting on December 12, 2018.

This agenda provides guidance to city representatives for communicating with legislators and other state officials about proposed legislation, rule-writing, and the administration of state prapprovedPass Action details Not available

19-5744 1  Agenda ItemSPECIAL 2% LODGING TAX COLLECTIONS IN COWLITZ COUNTY COUNCIL STRATEGIC INITIATIVE ADDRESSED: Continue effective financial management Address quality of place issues CITY ATTORNEY REVIEW: N/A SUMMARY STATEMENT: The attached letter addressed to the region’s legislative delegation requests that area legislators consider an amendment to the statute governing the collection of the “special 2%” lodging tax provided for within RCW 67.28.181. Unlike most cities in the state, the cities within Cowlitz County currently do not receive this portion of the lodging tax because state statute grants Cowlitz County with the authority for its collection and expenditure.

The requested change would give Cowlitz County cities the same collection authority as the majority of cities in the state of Washington.
