Blogging the Budget
This is interesting. On page 5, under objectives of the budget, there are only 2 organizations specifically named to get support from the city in the budget. Objective 10 is Support the Main Street Program for Downtown and Objective 15 reads Provide resources to support the Boys and Girls Club of Carbondale. No mention of the Hayes Center, Chamber of Commerce or Conv3ention and Tourism Bureau. Give the amount of money allocated to the Convention and Tourism Bureau, you'd think it would be listed on there but the closest thing is Objective 6: Encourage development of tourism related destination facilities.
