The annual meeting of the Lyon County Room Tax Board was June 11, 2008 in Yerington, the county seat in Lyon County, Nevada. Board members considered $350,000 in funding requests from each community in the county with $200,000 in funds. The grant money is collected from room taxes in county motels and hotels.

River Wranglers uses room tax funds to advertise the Carson River Festival, held each year in the springtime. This year River Wranglers requested $2,900 and received $2,500. Grant funds have strict guidelines and must be used to promote tourism and natural resources in Lyon County. River Wranglers plans to use their grant to create flyers, posters and banners to advertise the 2009 Carson River Festival.

Thanks to the Lyon County Room Tax Board for their support!
