The Authority, in turn, shall keep segregated the net proceeds into separate accounts based on the municipality from which the proceeds are collected. The Authority shall use at least two-thirds of the funds in each account to promote travel and tourism and the remaining one-third of the funds in each account for tourism-related expenditures in the municipality from which the funds are derived. To the extent funds from one account are used outside of the municipality where the occupancy tax was generated, the expenditure of funds must be consistent with the purposes set out in this section and must provide direct benefit to the municipality expending the funds.
Section 4. Definitions.
The following definitions apply in this ordinance:
(1) Net Proceeds. — Gross proceeds less the cost to the municipality administering and collecting the tax, as determined by the finance officer, not to exceed three percent (3%) of the first five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) of gross proceeds collected each year and one percent (1%) of the remaining gross receipts collected each year.
