LEXINGTON, Va. -

A plan to save a Lexington landmark is moving forward.

WDBJ7 told you last month about The Virginia Horse Center's ongoing struggle to pay its bills and maintain the facility.

The Center's leadership had a plan to get back on track, but that plan depended on the Rockbridge County Board of Supervisors approving a 1-percent increase in the occupancy tax.

Board members approved that increase at their last meeting.

The city of Lexington passed a similar measure in earlier this month.

The tax won't affect local residents, but instead people who visit the community and stay overnight at the area's hotels and motels.
