GARDINER — Businesses in the Yellowstone National Park gateway town of Gardiner have begun collecting a 3 percent seasonal resort tax.

Voters recently approved the tax.

The money collected will be used to help pay for emergency services, water and sewer maintenance, major transportation improvements, and to build and maintain a visitor center with public restrooms.

The Gardiner Chamber of Commerce estimates $700,000 to $1 million will be collected in the first year.
