Lodging industry rep needed

The Island County Board of Commissioners seeks applicants to fill a vacancy on the Joint Administration Board.

The current vacancy is for a representative from the lodging industry in unincorporated North Whidbey.

Applicants must reside within the area they are representing.

The JAB consists of 19 members representing the lodging industry, tourism organizations and elected officials from the county and incorporated cities of Whidbey Island.

The Joint Administration Board was created to administer the terms of the Interlocal Agreement including considering expenditures from the “County-Cities/Town Tourism Fund” and analyzing the extent to which the proposed expenditures will increase tourism and the extent to which the proposal will affect the long-term stability of the fund. The fund is supported through a 2 percent excise tax on lodging.
