Tourism Promotion

The Tourism Promotion (TP) Fund was created in 1983 for the purpose of "promoting tourism, advertising the community, attracting conferences, conventions and meetings, or for other purposes related to attracting tourist and visitor business to the city."  A 0.9% hotel excise tax was imposed to support the fund and a 0.8% restaurant excise tax was added in 1986.  

The Office of Business and Tourism (OBT) is responsible for administering the TP fund and associated programs (such as Montrose's official tourism website) event support and tourism advertising.
