Hamm said the Howard County Commissioners will determine how many board members there will be, though the figure must be odd. The board is currently made up of seven members.
The county council will be asked to approve the change this month, Hamm said.
The county council has several options including elimination of the tax; doing nothing, which will lower the tax to 4 percent; or approving the change to follow state law.
The CVB currently has reserve funds of about $500,000.
