Idea to Use Room Tax For Oktoberfest in Stall Mode
Oktoberfest is no closer to getting relief from parade fees. A La Crosse city council committee has left it up to an entirely different committee to consider whether the fest should get hotel room tax money to offset parade costs. The full council has yet to vote on the issue. But a plan to draw fees from the room tax is a little unclear when it comes to just how much money that would be. Some groups have opposed the idea out of fairness; they say Oktoberfest shouldn't be the only one benefitting from room tax revenue.
