Tourism board's future murky

Proposal to disband panel was first made in April

KINGMAN - The City Council will hold a work session at 3:30 p.m. today to discuss possibly dissolving the Tourism Development Commission.

The issue first came up in April when commission members Krystal Burge and Tom Spears asked the Council to disband the tourism board in order to avoid redundancy and conflict with a private tourism board.

The Council delayed taking action and held its first work session regarding the request in August. The Council revisited the issue at its first regular meeting in September, and asked for another work session, which has been scheduled for today.

The Council will discuss the potential disbandment and other options to restructure and revitalize the TDC.

City Manager John Dougherty will propose bringing tourism-related efforts "in house," and members of the TDC will also address the Council.

No action can or will be taken. Public comment will not be allowed without consensus from the Council, but brief presentations may be made at the invitation of Mayor Richard Anderson or Dougherty.

The meeting will occur in the Kingman Police Department's training room, 2730 Andy Devine Avenue. Parking is limited.
