Lexington Council Seeks Permission to Raise Hotel-Motel Tax

Dec 2, 2015

    The Lexington Council is asking the Kentucky General Assembly to grant the city the authority to raise its hotel-motel tax to help fund construction of a new convention center.  The request is one part of a funding package outlined during Tuesday’s work session.


Lexington hosts over 200 visual and crafts artists this weekend as the Kentucky Arts Council presents Kentucky Crafted: The Market at the Lexington Convention Center. This is the 31st annual festival and marks its second year in-a-row in Lexington. Arts Council Executive Director, Lori Meadows, spoke with Arts Weekly's Roger Duvall.
