“The increase in lodging tax revenue is an indicator that more people are visiting Seneca County. Seeing this number continuing to grow is proof that Seneca County is coming back from the pandemic stronger than ever. It also tells us we’re on the right path of marketing our growing community as a destination. Tourism is truly a community effort and we’re proud to be a part of this positive trend,” said Executive Director Bryce Riggs.
