Outlaw Square IDB Source of Funding # 9 Proposed Boundary Changes | Local news
DEADWOOD – On December 6, the Town of Deadwood Commission approved at first reading a Business Improvement District (BID) Amendment Order 9, which helps fund Outlaw Square.
âAnytime a BID district changes, it should be brought to your attention as a change in ordinance,â said Jessicca McKeown, City of Deadwood finance officer. âBID 9 was specially created to support Outlaw Square. There is a BID board that authorizes these expenses and we are only an intermediary, collecting.
Two properties are no longer part of BID # 9 – Black Hills Inn & Suites and Trucano B&B.
âThere are two that are being deleted, simply because their use has changed direction, so that they are no longer eligible for overnight rentals,â McKeown said. âThen we have a few additions. Branch House is added to Group 1. The Lodge is added to Group 2 and Saloon 10 is a non-transitory property.
A business tax of $ 2 per night is imposed on passing guests based on rooms rented by properties in Group 1, which also includes: The Celebrity Hotel, Deadwood Cottages at 390 Main Street and 388 Main Street , Deadwood Miners and Deadwood Rentals.
A business tax of $ 1 per night is imposed on passing guests based on rooms rented by establishments in Group 2, which also includes: Bullock Hospitality, Deadwood Gulch Gaming Resort, Deadwood Mountain Grand, Deadwood Station, Doubletree by Hilton, First Gold Hotel / Travelodge, Four Points Hotel, Franklin Hotel, Gold Dust Hotel / Pineview, Gold Country Inn, Hampton Inn at Tin Lizzie, Hickok’s Hotel & Casino, Holiday Inn Express, Iron Horse Inn, SpringHill Suites by Marriott, Tru by Hilton .
A general occupancy tax based on the front linear footage of the following non-player establishments will be billed in the following amounts: $ 50 per month for each establishment without accommodation that has 30 linear feet or less of front yardage and $ 75 per month for each non-accommodation establishment with more than 30 linear feet of front facade.
