Virginia City Council discusses tourism fund

Virginia City CouncilThe Virginia City Council and city staff met on Thursday evening to discuss the complexities of the Tourism Development Fund, which they hope will bring more tourism stock into the city.

In January, city manager Marvin Collins pitched the fund as a probability to create a “generational change” in the city’s tourism effort. Collins said that the fund, created to finance tourism-based infrastructure projects, could fetch as much as $3.5 million in its first year.

The proposed fund would finance projects that could drive tourism into the area.
In response to a question about how the fund would help city restaurants, Mayor Paul Freiling said that any move to bring tourists could help the city’s eateries. Freiling said, “All of those people will need a place to eat. They will need to eat lunch, and they will need to eat dinner.”

Collins said that presently, the city’s budget is too tight to fund some of the projects the city has in mind. Without money for those projects, they are moved over from year to year.
