Tourism in Cayuga County will get a financial boost if the county legislature approves an agreement with AirBnB when it meets on Tuesday.
The Ways and Means Committee last Wednesday voted to approve an agreement after Treasurer Jim Orman told the committee the agreement would be a big step forward. He quipped that other counties do it and they say it’s almost too easy.
He adds the room tax income will be put to good use.
Orman says the fun part will be determining the impact the unknown amount of additional income will have on the county, which took in $428,000 in room tax in 2017.
