County accepting public bids to run temporary tourism Website
Wanted: Tourism marketing Website for Plumas County.
When: The end of March until June 30.
That request for a proposal is all that remains of the services provided by the defunct Plumas County Visitors Bureau.
The bureau had a budget of more than $250,000 and a three-person staff just a few years ago.
County funding for the visitors bureau dried up at the end of 2011, forcing the bureau to shut down on Jan. 13.
At its Tuesday, Feb. 14 meeting, the county’s Board of Supervisors voted to revive a county-sponsored tourism marketing website through the end of the fiscal year. Who would run it and what it would look like has not been determined.
A story about the tourism marketing Website and a recap of the Board of Supervisors meeting will be featured in Feb. 22 editions of Feather Publishing newspapers.
