LeaAnn Dearman Petersen, the city’s Director of Communication, and Shawna Reid, the BAHCVB Marketing Manager, provided Council with an update of activities and happenings for Fiscal Year 20/21. In addition, they discussed a new plan for the BAHCVB which transitions the CVB into a tourism alliance for the entire region. Moving forward, partner cities will now pay a flat $45,000 annual rate rather than the 15% Hotel Occupancy Rate.
