Council stalls decision on funding for Westport/Grayland Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center

WESTPORT, Wash. – The City Council last night tabled the decision on what to do with the Westport/Grayland Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. At a standing room only council meeting, they considered cutting funding, and moving the VIC to City Hall.Local business owner Bill Wolfenbarger* said they weren’t looking at the bigger picture “the bigger picture is not Westport versus Grayland, which is unincorporated, and whether Westport puts money into the chamber or not. The question is whether the city of Westport should contribute to the greater welfare of the whole South beach area. Can’t you do that? Don’t you recognize that people who go to Grayland come to Westport?”
Council Desire Dodson said the idea has been discussed for years, but she’s changed her mind “when I took some time to actually go out and talk to some of you, I wondered why this is happening without having talked to anybody. Here we are at a year when we’re going into a centennial and we have so much coordinating to do and so much information to get out there. This is a really bad year to be doing this.” Council voted to take the issue up again at their second meeting in November.
