County Tourism Commission accepting funding requests

On Feb. 2, the County Tourism Commission (CTC) will hold their first quarter meeting for 2009. As part of the agenda, the commission will review funding requests for special events in 2009.

If you are an organization that will be hosting a special event in 2009, you can request funding assistance from the CTC.

The CTC assists special event organizations with the funds collected from county lodging tax dollars. The funds requested are usually used for marketing the event.

Interested parties can contact Mary Jo Coulehan at the Chamber, 264-2360, for information on required documentation for the presentation. Documentation needs to be submitted by Jan. 28 and a representative of the organization needs to be present on Feb. 2.

The next cycle of funding requests will not be held until May 4.
