How will the Brown County Music Center benefit the community?
The BCMC plans to locally source as much as it can and with all of the tourists coming to the venue, we are hoping many will stay to enjoy all that Brown County has to offer. Plenty of places to stay, eat, drink, explore and shop makes Nashville a great destination for music lovers to stick around and enjoy!
How is the project funded?
The project has been funded through a loan secured with the State Bank of Lizton, using the Innkeepers Tax as collateral. Should things come to the very worst the community will not suffer the weight of the loan, the property will be in the hands of the bank.
What is Innkeepers Tax?
The Innkeepers Tax is a 5% tax that is charged on overnight rooms rented for less than 30 days. The tax is collected from the Visitor, by the Innkeeper, and paid to the country treasurer. That tax can only be used to promote tourism in Brown County as outlined in IC 6-9-14.
