A bed-tax rate increase will go before the voters this November. The council voted Tuesday in favor of placing the 1 percent bed tax increase on the Nov. 3 special election ballot. “The hotel partners that are bringing this initiative forward are looking to increase what we in the industry call “heads in beds,” London Bridge Resort Vice President and General Manager Cal Sheehy told the council. “We’re looking to collect an additional tax.”
