Monday there is a special called TDC meeting that will precede the regularly scheduled County Commission meeting on Tuesday. Tuesday’s meeting will include the vote for the fifth tourist bed tax cent. On the agenda for Monday’s TDC meeting, there are a couple of other points to be discussed, but I reckon the main reason for the “special” annotation in the title is regarding the vote on the fifth cent on Tuesday.
The agenda item reads: “Discuss and Consider for Approval a Resolution to the Bay County Commission Regarding the Proposed 5th Cent. . .” I just received an email from a buddy asking me what I thought about the TDC changing the allocation of the fifth cent from sports and infrastructure improvements to all marketing. My computer crashed Wednesday and I’ve been waiting on my new computer since, and have been sort of in a forced vacation, so I’m not exactly sure what he is talking about yet, but stay tuned – I’ll let you know. I’m not sure I can get behind the TDC if they are wanting all of the increase to go towards marketing, but I’ll obstain further comment until I get the whole story.
