McCracken Fiscal Court Moves Forward With Plan To Dissolve Joint CVB
The McCracken County Fiscal Court on Monday approved dissolving a joint tourism commission with the City of Paducah and to form a new county commission.
The dissolution is effective August 31. The new CVB would begin on September 1.
County commissioners want to impose a 3% transient room tax expected to generate $1.2 million a year to go toward a “tournament worthy” sports facility that may include soccer, baseball and softball.
The current CVB is expected to become a city bureau.
City of Paducah Public Information Officer Pam Spencer said the city is working to get a four-way agreement in place between the existing CVB, a new CVB and the city and county before any additional action.
