FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- Davis County's tourism tax revenues are down 13 percent this calendar year compared with same period last year.

The taxes consist of a restaurant tax, a hotel room tax and a vehicle rental tax and typically generate about $4 million a year.

But Davis County officials say the revenue generated from the 1 percent restaurant tax is down by about $100,000, slipping from $2.8 million in 2008 to $2.7 million in 2009.

Revenues generated from hotel stays and vehicle rentals are down by 13 percent and 17 percent, respectively.

Davis County officials say revenue from restaurant taxes has held steady this year.
