PTC to consider tourism budget

Thursday night the Peachtree City Council is expected to sign off on the $532,021 proposed budget for the city’s newly-named Convention and Visitors Bureau, formerly known as the Peachtree City Tourism Association.

The proposed budget shows the CVB spending $273,204 on sales, marketing and promotion efforts for the city. A large part of the CVB mission is to focus on events that boost the city’s local hotels and motels, which in turn provide revenue for CVB via the city’s hotel-motel tax.

CVB plans to spend $127,000, or 24 percent of its budget, on local tourism events. Read More»
