A member of Morehead City Council wants to re-examine the tourism partnership with the County.

The topic was brought up during the closing minutes of the regular August meeting of Council held last night.

Councilmember Jan Bishop cited an issue with the funding model for Morehead-Rowan County Tourism.  Here she is speaking with Mayor Laura White-Brown.

Morehead-Rowan County Tourism is a fairly recent venture.  The Morehead Recreation, Tourism and Convention Commission was disolved in December of 2019, with the joint city-county commission appointed in January of last year.
