Tourism and Visitors Bureau

Tourism and Visitors Bureau Minutes

The Tourism and Visitors Bureau was created when the City’s lodging tax was implemented.  Ninety-five percent (95%) of the proceeds obtained from the collection of lodging taxes must be used to fund a local convention or tourism bureau for the purpose of marketing and promoting the City as a tourist or convention center.

The Tourism and Visitors Bureau meets on the fourth Friday of each month at 8:00 a.m.  There are nine members on this board.  Members serve three year terms.  Regular meeting dates are subject to change due to holidays, special circumstances, and/or elections.  If unsure about a meeting date or time, or to receive information on the location of the monthly meetings, please contact the Chamber of Commerce at 507-934-3400 or by e-mail at spchamb@hickorytech.net.

For information on the members of this board, please contact the City Administrator’s Office.

City Council advisory board and commission members are recommended by the Mayor and appointed by the City Council.  Vacancies occur most frequently at the end of the year, however vacancies do occur throughout the year as well.  If you are interested in being considered for appointment to this or any other advisory board or commission, please contact the City Administrator’s Office at 934-0663 or barbaral@saintpetermn.gov for an application card.  Members must live within the corporate limits of the City of Saint Peter.
