Ellis proposes split of city’s economic development and tourism departments

UPDATE: All members of City Council support the idea.

UPDATE: Ellis is now speaking on the matter. He said he thinks the city is reactive.

He thinks a 100 percent focus on economic development and 100 percent focus on tourism would be more effective. He said he understands that would be an increased cost.

***

City Councilman Brad Ellis this evening will propose that the city consider splitting its economic development and tourism department into two components.

He will recommend the council hold a work session to discuss the pros and cons of the idea and how best to partner activities of the city’s economic development staff and the city’s Economic Development Authority.
