Room Occupancy Tax (ROT)Carolina, Kure and Wrightsville Beach Mayors and Council members are working to gain control over 1 ½ % of the ROT that goes to the Tourism Development Authority (TDA) to spend on marketing.
The Towns want the option to use some of those funds for beach nourishment, if needed. I hope to have this resolved shortly.
