In January 2011 the Hinsdale County Lodging Tax Board created
an ad-hoc Marketing Committee known as the Lake City/Hinsdale
County Marketing Committee.  This committee operates under
the guidance, supervision and by-laws of the Hinsdale County
Lodging Tax Board.

The purpose of the Marketing Committee is to plan and
implement a comprehensive tourism marketing strategy both
short and long range for Lake City and Hinsdale County.  The
committee strives to be transparent and open in its decisions
and planning.  The committee is responsible for hiring
consultants and/or media specialists as needed.  A bidding
process is required for contracts in excess of $5,000.  All
contracts will be reviewed by the Lodging Tax Board.
The Marketing Committee consists of five members:  A Chair
from the Lodging Tax Board, a representative from the Lake
City/Hinsdale County Chamber of Commerce, the Lake City Town
Trustees, the Hinsdale County Board of County Commissioners
and a Citizen-at-Large.  The term of appointment will be two
years.  The Marketing Committee shall recommend qualified
candidates with final approval by the Hinsdale County Lodging
Tax Board.  The Citizen-at-Large term will be one year.

The committee will hold meetings as often as necessary to
implement their plan.  A quorum of three members is required
for a meeting.  All meetings shall be open to the public with
proper notification of the meeting time and place.  The
committee shall report their actions to the Hinsdale County
Lodging Tax Board on a quarterly basis.  The representatives of
each entity may report to their respective boards as needed.

The Marketing Committee shall create a working budget with
expenditures handled by Hinsdale County.  Pursuant to
§30-11-107.5 the Marketing Committee will provide a yearly
accounting of expenditures.  

Cooperation by all five members of the Marketing Committee is
essential to the success of this effort.  Therefore, each member
of the committee will strive to cooperate and work with other
members of the committee.
The Lake City/Hinsdale County Marketing Committee will hold
one workshop and one regular Meeting per month.  Additional
meetings will be held as needed.  Regular Meetings will take place
on the second Wednesday of each month.  Most meetings are in
