Yesterday we posted the story about Dauphin’s hotel tax on Facebook and it caused some confusion about who the tax applies to and what it’ll be used for.

City Manager Sharla Griffiths emphasizes it’s just for those staying in hotel rooms.

“It’s not (for) residents, it’s (for) people visiting our community and it’s so people who do visit our community have more things to do. A benefit of that is that residents will also be able to partake in those activities.”

The tax will be used for maintenance of all recreational facilities in Dauphin, funding for other recreational projects, and possibly extending the protected bike lanes.
