The PRAT collects a half cent of every dollar spent on tourism related purchases.
Broadband and Business Development Committee member Phil Albert said he has seen the success of the tax in nearby cities, like Rhinelander.
"It appears to be an opportunity for Minocqua to raise dollars that can be used for infrastructure in the community," said Albert.
Voters must decide instead of the town board because Minocqua didn't meet one of the automatic qualifications for the PRAT.
Albert said the tax would allow for more road repairs without increasing property taxes.
