A new state report says that if it weren’t for tourists, we’d all be paying higher taxes in Livingston county.

The report says we’d all be paying at least another $400 a year in property taxes to pay for government services if we didn’t have such a robust tourism industry.

Tourism spending in Livingston County is up. It jumped more than 16 percent last year — the highest growth rate of 14 counties in the area.
