In July, the Ketchum City Council referred a measure to the ballot for a vote in the fall 2013 election. The measure will increase the local option tax (LOT) by 1% to help market and promote new flights and to secure those flights through contracts with airlines.

On Election Day, November 5, 2013, Ketchum voters can say Yes to Tourism and Yes to Jobs. Increased air service is crucial for the community because:
  • Increasing air service will help us keep our local jobs;
  • More flights will increase tourism to the community, meaning more jobs at the small businesses that rely so much on tourism; and
  • Increased air service makes the Wood River Valley a more attractive place to do business. It will encourage new businesses to locate here and allow existing businesses to grow and create good jobs.
The 1% LOT increase in Ketchum will generate approximately $2 million, which will enable our community to address the marketing and air service contacts the community needs to attract new visitors and keep others coming back. 

The Ketchum Tourism and Jobs Initiative formed to support a Yes vote on November 5 because this measure will help increase tourism, jobs and the economy in the Wood River Valley!
