GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL HEARS ABOUT TOURISM AND PASSES ORDINANCES PDF Print
Tuesday, 15 May 2012 06:28

The Glasgow City Council approved on first reading an ordinance that contained a series of budget amendments for the fiscal year ending June 30th of this year.  The amendments included several unforeseen expenditures for the landfill, police department, and other areas of city government as well as additional revenues appropriated.  Mayor Rhonda Trautman explained that it was best to put all of these amendments into one ordinance rather than address each issue as it was presented throughout the fiscal year. 

Also, Ann Stewart, Marketing and Tourism Director, gave a report on her role in the community as it pertains to the local economy.  Stewart explained to the council the impact of some $49 Million that tourism has on the community; everything from the Roller Coaster Yard Sale to the Glasgow Highland Games.

The Council went into closed session to discuss future sale or acquisition of property and personnel matters; however, no action was taken.  The Glasgow City Council will not meet again until June 11th.
