REPEALING CHAPTER 882 “LODGING EXCISE TAX” OF THE CODIFIED ORDINANCES OF YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO AND ENACTING NEW CHAPTER 882 “LODGING EXCISE TAX AND REGISTRATION”
ORDINANCE 2021-06, VILLAGE OF YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO
Interested persons will take note that the Village Council of Yellow Springs on Monday, April 5, 2021, gave first reading to an ordinance, text to follow.
Council will give a second reading to consider passage into law during a public hearing on Monday, April 19, 2021, via a virtual meeting.
Whereas, Codified Ordinance Section 882.02 (a) imposes a Lodging Excise Tax of three percent on all rents received by any lodging establishment for lodging furnished to transient guests while Codified Ordinance Section 1262.08(e) (7) addresses specific requirements for obtaining a Conditional Use Permit for Transient Guest Lodging; and
Whereas, upon the request of Village Council, Staff reviewed the data from Village records since Chapter 882 was enacted in 2017 by Ordinance 2017-04 and presented those findings in a report to Village Council and with a related report scheduled for the Planning Commission; and
Whereas, Village Council has determined that it would be in the best interest of the Village to distinguish between the Conditional Use Permit for Planning Commission purposes and an annual registration for tax purposes by revising Chapter 882 to reflect that distinction as well as revisions to improve lodging excise tax reporting and collections,
NOW, THEREFORE, COUNCIL FOR THE VILLAGE OF YELLOW SPRINGS, OHIO HEREBY ORDAINS THAT:
Section 1. Chapter 882 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Yellow Springs, Ohio is hereby repealed.
Section 2. A new Chapter 882 is enacted as set forth on the attached and incorporated Exhibit A with new language underlined and bolded and deleted language in strikethrough. Exhibit B, indicating related proposed language for Section 1262.08(E)(7), is attached for reference only as it will be separate legislation subject to recommendations from the Planning Commission.
Section 3. This ordinance shall take effect and be in full force on the 30th day following passage.
Brian Housh, President of Council
