Explore Big Sky Staff Writer

BIG SKY – The Big Sky Resort Tax Board is holding a town hall meeting at the Warren Miller Performing Arts Center on March 13. On the docket are updates on the community housing development plan, the recreation center feasibility study and Visit Big Sky’s marketing strategy.

The first meeting, held Feb. 13 focused on three main components: Clarifying a list of items subject to resort tax; outlining funding application requirements; and explaining the board’s ability to fund long-term, larger projects.

The board also outlined what the board expects to see from organizations seeking resort tax funding for 2014-2015 projects. Applications are due April 14; the RTB will hold a Q-and-A session on May 14; and appropriations will be announced at a meeting on June 11.

Big Sky’s resort tax collects 3 percent on “luxury” goods and services, among all clothing, sporting goods, prepared and served food, recreational instruction, entertainment, spa services and alcoholic beverages.

The Big Sky Resort Tax Board consists of Jamey Kabisch, Mike Scholz, Ginna Hermann, Jeff Strickler and Heather Budd.
