The Bemidji City Council will hold a community listening session during their work session Monday.
The meeting will be held at the Sanford Center Ballroom beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The council is seeking feedback on a hospitality tax, a concept discussed for years as a means of offsetting the operating losses of the Sanford Center.
Currently, the deficit is levied through property taxes. The annual deficit is usually around $400,000.
The Sanford Center is also looking to make capital improvements, as the technology installed at its construction is outdated.
A hospitality tax is more flexible than a sales tax and can be used for both operational and capital needs.
Sales taxes, per state law, can only be used toward physical assets such as a building.
