A Teton County lodging tax that voters will consider extending in November has promoted local tourism as well as services such as a new county ambulance.
A Jackson Hole News & Guide analysis published Wednesday found that 60 percent of tax revenues promote tourism and 40 percent are spent by the county and Jackson on local needs.
Voters will decide whether to renew the 2 percent tax on lodging sales on Nov. 4.
Voters approved the tax in 2010 after the Legislature allowed some revenues to be used for county services other than tourism.
