- Council appoints transition committee March 3, 2015
The Granbury City Council Tuesday night (March 3) appointed a four-member committee to “study the transition” for a Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) that would receive funding from the city, but would be an independent entity. The Council shied away from fully committing to eliminating the city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau department and moving to a separate organization – a move pushed strongly by council member Rose Myers. The transition committee includes Jim Leitch, who will represent hotels and bed and breakfast establishments; Scott Young, president of the Historic Granbury Merchants Association; Diane Hedges, head of the Tourism Advisory Board; and Myers, who will represent the City Council. The committee will research what the conversion would entail and will report back to the Council.
