Moffat County Tourism Association has new office space
“We were looking for someone willing to accommodate us for less than a full year. It was easy to move in quickly and they were thrilled to have us,” said MCTA Executive Director Tom Kleinschnitz. “It has a professional business atmosphere with all the things I need to use to do my job.”
The lease runs to the end of the year at a rate of $350 a month including utilities for a nine-month total of $3,150 well below the $8,800 budgeted for rent and utilities resulting in significant savings.
The association will have to spend extra money to have brochures and business cards reprinted. The board will consider new signs to help direct visitors to the office.
The move was prompted when property rented on the corner of Yampa Avenue and Victory Way was sold in February resulting in confusion over the terms of a new lease.
Kleinschnitz presented the bank for consideration of the board at their March 8 meeting.
He had concerns about the accessibility of the office space as the building doesn’t have an elevator and it’s visibility. However he since learned that anyone needing accommodation would be able to meet him in a conference room on the ground floor, he said.
The office is generally open during normal business hours. To make an appointment Kleinschnitz can be reached at 970-824-2335.
“I look forward to serving the county in a new a location,” Kleinschnitz said.
