07/06/2020: City of Monterey Changes Hotel Tax Remittance to Monthly to Address Operations and Budget Projections Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic is impacting all City of Monterey operations, service levels and budgets. The City is acting rapidly to jumpstart the economy and safely reopen City services and facilities. To that end, effective July 2020, the Finance Director established a shorter reporting period from bi-monthly to monthly to ensure prompt collection of Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT), also known as Hotel Tax, Conference Center Facilities District Tax (CCFD), and Tourism Improvement District Tax ( TID) per City Code section 35-15(b).    

            Moving to a monthly remittance period will provide the City with more timely cash flow and budget data, and help staff make more informed and effective decisions about the ability to reopen facilities, and bring back staff along with the services and programs our residents are used to enjoying.  Also, starting in July, in an effort to streamline operations, the City’s TOT remittance form will be posted online and the City will discontinue mailing TOT forms to operators.  NEWS RELEASE IN PDF

RSS - Real Simple Syndication

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and is a system of content syndication that allows a user to get automatic updates from multiple web sites whenever new content is published on these sites. It acts like a personal web reader by checking your selected sites regularly for new content. If you set up an RSS feed from the New York Times Sports section, for example, you would be notified whenever a new article was posted. The notification takes place in an RSS Reader.

To use a site’s RSS feature, an RSS reader is required.

  1. Choose an RSS reader. An Internet search will return many options. Some readers are web-based, such as Google Reader, My Yahoo! and Bloglines. Web-based readers require no software installation and are accessible from any computer that has Internet access. Other readers are downloadable applications, such as FeedReader or FeedDemon.
  2. Once you’ve chosen an RSS reader, follow the instructions to download, install, and open the reader.
  3. Decide what type of content you want the RSS reader to monitor. Many web sites provide RSS, which can usually be found on those sites as a link. An orange button is often used to display the service’s availability. Sometimes the RSS feed is automatically added to the RSS reader and updates are sent every time new content is available. Alternatively, you may have to click the RSS link and copy it into your RSS reader.
