Jury tables CVB budget proposal
The budget presented by the CVB listed $50,000 for the park and $175,000 for a new convention center. The original agreement worked out between the CVB and the Police Jury called for the park to received 1 cent of a 3-cent hotel-motel tax in Lincoln Parish. Last year a fourth cent was added, with 3 cents going to the CVB and 1 cent to the park. Based on CVB estimates, the park should receive about $102,500 in 2007 based on CVB projections of $410,000 in hotel-motel tax.
