A revised ad hoc Tourism Funding Committee is bring formed in Langley and the mayor is looking for a few interested volunteers.

The committee will apply new criteria to tourism proposals seeking funding from the lodging tax.

Three to five residents, who live within the Greater Langley 98260 ZIP code, are needed to serve on the committee that will be most active leading up to this October’s budget discussions, and again in April.

Experience in the tourism industry would be a plus but it’s not required. No board member of an organization that will be requesting tourism funding may sit on the committee, according to a press release from Mayor Tim Callison’s office.

“Occasionally, you will be called upon if there are special limited funding reviews required during the year,” Callison stated.

The committee is also expected to review standing contracts with Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, the Langley Chamber of Commerce and Island County as they expire.

Interested residents should fill out a Langley Volunteer Application form and submit to the Mayor’s Office by Sept. 1.
