Cartoon O Day- Once Upon a Time- 4b/Chamber/Events Coordinator

9 December 2010 at 3:28:47 PM

References below.


At what public meeting with what vote did the city ask the Chamber to take over scheduling for Beck Field?

conflict of interest aside, is it even legal for 4b to use funds for an events coordinator?

Events coordinator would get paid bonuses, which raises questions of parity and fairness.

Events coordinator would report to the Chamber which raises the same questions, particularly when there are bonuses involved.

What would be the procedure for non-Chamber events? And what would take precedence? Fees?

How many festivals and events would an events coordinator have to book?

How come bouncey houses would be paid from the 4b money? Is there a list of what it CANNOT be used for?

What about the CVB?


November- Best gets Mike Dooley to do the pitch.

October-I'm not the only one that doesn't like the intermingling.

July-Best brought this up in July at the City of Glen Rose retreat


Apparently Best was testing the waters at the budget meeting in July 2010 to see whether he could grease the skids, so to speak. Reason is that the process for 4b is that 4b approves, then the city, THEN THERE MUST BE A PUBLIC HEARING and then the city finally votes. Since it isn't like the money was actually allocated at that point, nor could it be until after the public hearing, one guesses he wanted to find out which way the wind would blow if he brought this up as a project later, AFTER it had been through proper procedures.

To me, the solution to this problem is simple. The 4B has no business giving $ to the Chamber of Commerce for a position for 'events coordinator', or anything else, and the city has no business going along with this request. This is inappropriate use of taxpayer $.

The city has already funded a similar position, the CVB, and Mr. Huckaby, who is well-qualified for lining up events for the city. The Chamber is a private business and can either sink or swim on its own initiative. It does not need nor deserve taxpayer $ to meet their needs. Frankly, I'm not sure just what the Chamber does for this community, but that's their problem, not the city's.

Mr. Best has created a clear conflict of interst by serving the Chamber and the 4B. He is out of line and should rescind his request and re-examine his expectations concerning what the Chamber has to offer Glen Rose and how it should proceed.
