Moffat County Local Marketing District selecting board members

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

The Moffat County Local Marketing District ex-officio board meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Craig City Hall to interview operating board candidates and make appointments.

The current board, which consists of 17 members combined from the Board of Moffat County Commissioners, Craig City Council and Dinosaur Town Council, has been working to select the operating board since the LMD was passed by voters in November.

According to the official bylaws, board members must be a resident or property owner in Moffat County and view the entire county as one economic system.

The operating board is still accountable to the local governmental agencies that form the LMD — the town of Dinosaur, city of Craig and Moffat County.

On the seven-person board, the county and city will appoint three people and Dinosaur one.

The LMD imposes a 4 percent lodging tax in all of Moffat County. The funds collected from the tax can be used for promoting tourism, supporting business recruitment, management and development, and organizing public events.
