Sun Advocate community editor

Over the past two months, Carbon County Commissioners have merged the restaurant tax board and the transient room tourism tax board, creating the newly formed Carbon County Tourism Tax Advisory Board.

"It is our hope that the new board will give cohesiveness to the processes of funding tourism related projects in the county," said Carbon County Tourism Director Kathy-Hanna Smith. "This brings everybody under one roof, the advisory board will now make unified decisions and recommendations to the county commissioners for their final approval and finance."

The board is made up of 50 percent of individuals from the eating and lodging industry, while the other 50 percent of the voting body is made up of persons from other tourism related businesses.

The new members of the voting board include:

•Christine Trease, museums.

•Barbee Deleeuw, lodging and food.

•Dan Allen, recreation, lodging and food.

•Nick Tatton, community director.

•Angie Johansen, airport

•Dustin Wardle, lodging, food

•Andy Urbanik, food

There are also ad hoc, non voting committee members including:

•Rick Davis, appointment for Price city as Price city council member.

•Delynn Fielding, Carbon County Economic Development Director.

•Chanel Atwood, Castle Country Regional Information Specialist.

Smith pointed out that one of the many advantages of the new board is the fact that not only will they meet regularly but will also be available to call special meetings in order to address new and valuable projects.

"We will make every effort possible to ensure that the funding process is as user friendly as possible for those seeking to bring tourism to the area," concluded Smith.
