Voters could also be asked to consider new or increased taxes on hotel parking and rooms.
A 1% hotel bed-tax-rate bump would drive revenue by $500,000. Officials could also try to bump up a 12% parking tax that has been in place since 2005.
A 1% increase there could bring in an additional $215,000 annually to the General Fund.
Hotel owners would also be more inclined to back a proposal that funded business marketing rather than schools and libraries, Flad said.
