Fulton Hotel Tax

FULTON, Miss. (WCBI) – The initial numbers are in for the City of Fulton’s new hotel tax and the seem to be falling short of original estimates.

City officials say,  in a two month span Fulton has collected more than $6,200 in funds from its new tourism tax.

That comes to close $3,100 per month.

When factored for the year that comes to close to $38,000, which falls short of the $50,000 to $70,000 city officials were hoping for.

Although the numbers only represent two months, Mayor Paul Walker says the results show promise.
