Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist Commission members are finding more uses for the revenue from the citywide restaurant tax that was passed last July.

Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist Commission Executive Director Bill Stevens said board members are looking to hire an administrative assistant for him, and have tentatively agreed to hire Cindy Sholar for that position.

Sholar is the member relations coordinator for the Cadiz-Trigg County Chamber of Commerce, so the details would need to be worked out with that group. But Sholar would likely continue to work for them a few hours a week.

Board members will meet again at 2 p.m. Wednesday to finalize their 2014/2015 fiscal year budget, which will include the new administrative assistant. It will also include more spending on advertising for the area. Stevens said the restaurant tax has really helped them with their advertising capabilities.

“We are appreciative of that,” said Stevens.
