Anticipated Ballot Measure: 0.5% for Housing

In 2020, Hailey voters approved a 1% Local Option Tax on hotel, motel short-term occupancy, and rental car revenue, to market air service. The tax is commonly known as "1% for Air," Ketchum and Sun Valley have a similar tax. While Hailey's 1% for Air does not expire until 2050, Hailey is considering joining Ketchum to ask voters to reallocate the tax to fund "0.5% for Air" and "0.5% for Housing." The City Council will determine over the next two months whether to put the matter to the voters in May 2023.
