At the primary election in November of 2012, the voters of Campbell County approved a proposition to establish a lodging tax county-wide. Wyoming Statutes require that a joint Powers Board be established to oversee spending the tax revenues. A Joint Powers Agreement to establish the Lodging Tax Joint Powers Board was prepared and approved by Campbell County, Gillette and Wright and then formally approved by the Wyoming Attorney General on December 5 of 2008. The Board has seven members, a majority of whom are from the travel and tourism industry. Gillette, Campbell County, and Wright may each choose one member, who does not need to be in the travel and tourism industry. The remaining four members of the board are appointed; two by Gillette and one each from Campbell County and Wright. No Residency Requirements.
The board members serve 3 year terms although in the first term two members serve one year terms, two members serve two year terms and three serve three year terms. The board meets at 3:30 pm on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the GAMB Ponderosa Room.
