§ 116.30  FINDING AND DECLARATION OF COUNCIL.
   It is found and declared that the Danville Metropolitan Exposition Auditorium and Office Building Authority has been established for the entertainment, cultural and educational benefit of the citizens of the city and the city should cooperate and assist the Authority in providing these benefits to the city.  There exists the likelihood that from time to time the David S. Palmer Arena will not be self-sustaining and may be in need of additional funds to insure capable and efficient operation of its facilities for the benefit of the people of the city.
   It is also found and declared that the Danville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the City’s parks including Harrison Park Golf Course provide a service, which improves the quality of life in the city, and the city should also cooperate and assist them with additional funds to insure efficient operation of these parks and facilities, for the benefit of the people of the city.
   For this reason, a tax upon the use and privilege of renting a hotel or motel room shall be levied and proceeds from such tax used for the benefit of the David S. Palmer Arena, Danville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the City’s Parks Division including Harrison Park Golf Course.
