Seeley Lake Residents to Vote on Resort Tax
Tax would go toward water and sewer systems
SEELEY LAKE – Voters in Seeley Lake are being asked if they want to implement a 3 percent resort tax, with 95 percent of the proceeds to be used to pay for a new water system and a planned $20 million sewer system.

The Montana Department of Commerce designated Seeley Lake a resort area in 2007, allowing residents to vote on a resort tax.

Walt Hill is co-chairman of the Seeley Lake Community Council's resort tax committee. He says residents rejected a 2008 resort tax to enhance sidewalks and streetlights and a 2009 tax on items including alcohol and tobacco to pay for sewer and water systems.

The Missoulian reports this year's version would tax the retail value of most goods and services sold by lodging facilities, restaurants, taverns and resorts, along with luxury items.
