Borough Looks At Restoring Funding To KPTMC

first_imgPhoto provided by The Kenai, Alaska’s Playground The sum of $150,000 is appropriated from the General Fund, fund balance to account for Peninsula Promotion – KPTMC was formed for the purpose of promoting tourism in the areas outside of the cities inside the Kenai Peninsula Borough. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly will look at an ordinance at their meeting on Tuesday, October 22, that would restore funding in the amount of $150,00 for the Kenai Peninsula Tourism Marketing Council. The ordinance was introduced by assemblymember Brent Hibbert who wrote in a memo to the assembly, the assembly appropriated $100,000 for KPTMC in the FY 2020 budget, which was the same amount it had appropriated the previous year, to provide it an opportunity to continue improving its online presence and low-cost digital marketing of the borough. Back in June the organization took at large hit when Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce vetoed $100,000 from their budget. However, the mayor vetoed that appropriation. In fiscal years 2016, 2017 and 2018 the assembly had appropriated more than $300,000 each year for tourism promotion by KPTMC. To continue supporting tourism promotion this ordinance would appropriate $150,000 to be granted to the KPTMC pursuant to a contract which outlines their plans and proposed project for the rest of this fiscal year. The ordinance will be introduced at the assembly meeting on Tuesday, October 22.last_img read more
