TID is the Tourist Improvement District tax which is collected by the cities and the counties and given to MCCVB to market the area for tourism. This dovetails with what I posted yesterday. You will recall that MCCVB gets a significant or major part of their financing for marketing our area from the various TIDs. There are 3 “zones” with differing pricing. There is no description of which zones are for what areas, or how those determinations are made. Two hearings, both at 7 pm at the City of Monterey Council Chambers, the first on September 18th and the second at which the tax will be imposed on October 16th.
