CVB should accept park responsibility
The Jury is making a strong effort to help generate tourism dollars for Lincoln Parish. The recent purchase of three sets of portable bleachers for more than $100,000 will help facilitate larger crowds at the North Central Louisiana Expo Center. Those bleachers were in use this weekend for the annual Ruston High School Rodeo, a three-day event that CVB Executive Director Kyle Edmiston called a “significant” tourism draw for Lincoln Parish. That draw equates to hotel rooms being filled and dollars being spent to grow our local economy.
