Steve Miller: Where is MCTA in role with Visitor Center?

— Dear editor:

I have been silent on an issue until reading the story about the City Council meeting concerning the Moffat County Vistor’s Center.

As former sales and marketing coordinator of the Moffat County Tourism Association, I am very sad and disappointed that there is such a debate going on concerning the center.

Before the power struggle, the Chamber and MCTA chose to work closely together – we needed each other.

Cathy Vanatta worked very hard for both entities, and it worked. The return-of-investment MCTA received with the funds given to the Chamber during those years can now never be recovered now that MCTA has moved to the museum.

It appears MCTA has a “lone ranger” mentality and sadly it is now affecting another entity that used to partner so greatly for the same great cause.

When MCTA was an infant, the Craig Chamber and its board, along with the Visitor’s Center went out of its way to make sure MCTA was successful.

Now when the Visitor’s Center’s future is in question, where is MCTA? I hope the MCTA board would look at their roots before burning any bridges in this manner.
