DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Policy 10.1.6.4 of the Economic Development Element of the County's General Plan specifies that, "The majority of transient occupancy tax (TOT) generated revenue shall be directed toward the promotion of tourism, entertainment, business, and leisure travel in El Dorado County."

To accomplish the goals of the Policy, the County has entered into agreements with various organizations over the years that act on the County's behalf to promote tourism, entertainment, business, and leisure travel.

Effective July 1, 2017, the County entered into an agreement (Funding Agreement #087-F1811) with Tahoe Prosperity Center to conduct the following during the period of July 2017 through June 30, 2018:
