Glad to see the 4b/GREDC TABLED the possible Chamber events position funded by 4b (October 2010)

6 October 2010 at 3:03:38 PM

I didn't go to the 4b meeting the other night, was just way busy, but will be getting audio in the next week  or so to post, as I want to hear the comments(update: No, I won't Mr Best told me this morning that he didn't record the meeting) . In the Glen Rose Reporter today, Sept 20, 2010, there's an article about the 4b meeting that was held on Monday night. You remember how Darrell Best wanted to use 4b money funnelled for a full time position on the PRIVATE Chamber? Apparently Karen Richardson did a public comment about how that position shouldn't be connected to just one organization. Sandra Ramsey, who's on the 4b, said that she didn't like the intermingling.

Neither do we. We have asked before, since we first heard Best making his pitch to have a position funded, rather than from the CVB, but the 4b for the chamber, why this was not a conflict of interest.  Also, from the July 2010 City of Glen Rose retreat.  Why, again, isn't this position part of the CVB? Billy Huckaby was talking about getting another employee to do this as well, isn't this a low level of duplication of effort?

Side question with this, which someone mentioned to me. If the Chamber is not doing well enough to be able to fund their own events coordinator, the question is why? The Chamber is a private org so they don't have to tell, at this point, how they spend money or how many members, or if anybody owes money, etc. But why should public money go to a private org that, unlike, say, Barnard's Mill, doesn't host fund raisers or do other money-raising activities to fill coffers rather than using the 4b till?

Good to see that others also feel this way, including Ken Prykryl, and the item was tabled for further review.
