Bay County Chamber of Commerce Chairman, Bill Fenimore presented a letter in support of a new bed tax within the Panama City,
city limits to its commission on November 26th. The bed tax will only be applicable to Panama City visitors who rent or lease
accommodations for less than six months.
A local bill will be drafted and presented to our state delegation on December 5th, during their public hearing. The tax could be
used for the repair, improvement, maintenance, operations and promotion of existing public buildings and marketing of the
Panama City area. The final vote would be given to the citizens of Panama City on a referendum.
