Officials in Davis County, Utah, have reached an agreement with Hill Air Force Base allowing local hotels to accommodate visitors when the installation’s on-base lodging is at full capacity.
The memorandum of understanding, which provides guidance to Hill on handling visitors’ inquiries regarding participating hotels in Davis County, still needs final approval from base officials, reported the Standard-Examiner.
“Hill Air Force Base enjoys the benefits of strong community partnership and support,” the base said in a written statement. “This lodging agreement benefits both Hill and the local community,” it said.
Last year, base visitors spent 11,000 hotel room nights in Davis County out of a total of 17,000 room nights requested. The agreement is almost identical to one neighboring Weber County has in place with Hill.
The pact is “a great service” to the base, Louenda Downs, a commissioner for Davis County, told the Examiner.
