Why are my tax dollars being used to fund these programs?

They're not but you benefit from them. The CVB is a non-profit entity. All programs are funded by Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT), which is a percentage assessed on overnight hotel stays in the area, which is why we always want to encourage more overnight visitors. HOT Taxes actually help offset your local taxes.
