The Sunnyside City Council voted 6-0 to give $7,000 in lodging tax funds to the Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce for tourism promotion.
In January, the council approved $38,000 of the chamber’s original request for $45,000 with the caveat that the remaining funds would be released after the chamber provided details to clarify how the funds are spent.
Councilman Francisco Guerrero reported that the lodging tax advisory committee is pleased with the documentation the chamber provided regarding its work. The council adopted the recommendation of the committee to release the remaining funds.
