Boonville tourists may soon spend more money on their visits.
That's because the city wants to increase its lodging tax from 4 % to 5 %. That move will add an additional $40,000 to the tourism fund for next year.
A lodging tax is applied only to those who spend the night in a hotel, motel, bed and breakfast, or campground in Boonville city limits.
Representative Lisa McClary of the Boonville Tourism Commission said she knows how the money will be spent.
