Visitors to Las Vegas who stay in hotels and motels could be paying a little more for their rooms in the near future if one city councilor gets his way.
Councilor Joey Herrera is proposing that the city raise its lodgers tax rate from 4 percent to 5 percent to generate more money for improvements to Rodriguez Park and other baseball facilities. State law allows municipalities to charge the higher tax — which is tacked on to hotel and motel rates — although the city has previously opted not to charge the full amount.
