Perham hotels will charge 3 percent lodging tax starting January 2010
Perham will enter the modern age of tourism marketing, following the approval of a local, 3 percent lodging tax that could generate about $30,000 a year.
The tax only affects the two motels within city jurisdiction: The Crossings and the Super 8-though several local Chamber of Commerce officials would like to find support to extend the lodging tax out to the resorts on East Otter Tail lakes.
Lodging taxes are common throughout the nation.
