Board Positions Open with Prowers County

Media Release 

The Prowers County Board of Commissioners is accepting applications from persons who are residents of Prowers County to fill two (2) positions on the nine-member Prowers County Lodging Tax Tourism Panel. Each term is for three (3) years and will expire in December 2020.

The Lodging Tax Tourism Panel was established in December 2005 to administer the funds created by the 2% lodging tax which was passed by the voters in November 2005. The revenue from the lodging tax has specific guidelines for its use set by the Colorado Statutes. The lodging tax revenue may only be used for advertising and marketing which will bring people from outside the County into Prowers County for events. The Board reviews applications from area organizations and individuals for funding to help with their advertising and marketing expenses for events held in Prowers County.

The Colorado Statutes stipulate that directors must be from the tourism industry. Each director serves a three (3) year term and is required to attend monthly meeting on the third Tuesday of each month.

A Prowers County Application for Boards and Commissions is available on our website: or can be picked up at the Administration Office. Applications may be dropped off at the Administration Office or mailed to Prowers County Commissioners, 301 S. Main St., Suite 215, Lamar, CO 81052.

Applications must be received by 5pm on January 12, 2018.
