The Crossett City Council heard July 18 a proposal for a hotel tax to fund tourism-related activities in the city.

Crossett City Councilman Chris Gill discussed his proposal to levee a 3 percent Advertising and Promotion Tax, or “hotel tax,” on any structure or business that provides short term lodging within Crossett city limits.

Gill said the tax was brought up during the winter conference, at which time he began speaking to other municipalities about its potential benefits.
