City officials are changing the way hotel/motel taxes and the alcohol franchise fees are collected, and will save some money by making the change.
Tax And Fees
The city collects a 2 percent hotel/motel tax on rooms and a 5 percent fee on alcohol sales in private clubs.
The hotel/motel tax has generated $618,000 for the Advertising and Promotion Commission through November.
The alcohol fees, which go to the city, stood at $548,000 through November.
The city also collects an annual private club permit fee of $250. This year the city collected $14,000.
There are 57 private clubs in Rogers, although more are expected in 2013.
