    The number quoted in my letter for transit room tax is in error. That number is the total Vacation rental income earned by vacation home owners during that period. The actual transit room tax forwarded to the City of Lincoln City is 9.5% of that amount, or around $500,000 to $600,000 per year in transit room tax. I am so sorry for the misleading information. I asked the Lincoln City Visitors Association (city agency) to give me a copy of the latest powerpoint presentation given to the Transit Room tax committee of the City. The director of the agency was on vacation so the assistant forwarded me the powerpoint presentation and the numbers presented was the total rental income earned not Transit Room tax earned. The number is still impressive as an amount provided to the City to regulate Vacation Rental Homes.
    Again, I’m sorry for the wrong number.
