The position of the tourism coordinator has been filled by the Fulton City Council after a brief closed session that took place on Monday. Also, the council granted the hike in salary for all the city workers that reflect the regional average.
As per Randy Balk, Interim City Administrator, Deb Ervin, the newly appointed Tourism Coordinator is a Fulton native who resides out of town, at this moment and was one out of the four candidates interviewed. She will accept a 30-hour work week. Balk highlighted her years of experience in hospitality, and other facets of tourism.
“Just delighted to have her in this position,” said Alderwoman Barb Mask. “She has a lot of contacts, she has a lot of skills, she’s very enthused about Fulton and its future… Our tourism committee is most eager to meet with her.”
Wages for three city hall staffers became competitive, two 5-percent growth bring those workers to around $16 and $20 per hours. One 12-percent increase welcomes another to around $15-per-hour wage. Balk mentioned that the increases would eventually make the city pay comparable to similar municipalities.
Gary W. Anderson Architects, after city business, offered a concept plan in terms of historic Fidelity/Drives Building. Three members showed a potential multi-phase build of a banquet hall upstairs along with community center on the main floor. The group imagined the front staircase for a grade-level entryway. The base floor, divided on screen by A, B, C, D, E and F, listed ways to break out the space into a community center.
