SOMERSET, Ky. (WYMT)- Folks lodging at hotels within the corporate limits of Somerset will be paying a little more in transient taxes.

The ordinance levies a three percent transient room tax to fund operations of the all-volunteer commission. Another one percent tax would go to the center for rural development.
