The board of directors for the Santa Rosa County Tourist Development Council voted in favor of recommending two of the three interested applicants to the Board of County Commissioners to fill two seats being vacated on the board. They also voted to approve $32,000 in funding for organizations who submitted applications to receive grant money for events taking place next fiscal year.
The two board of director seats that expire in Oct. are currently held by north end board member Jack Sanborn and south end board member Mike Loera.
After a very brief application period, only three letters of interest were received, one of which was from Jack Sanborn for reappointment to the north end committee. The second letter came from Norm Crowder, activities director for Santa Rosa RV Resort and the other from Angie Lee of Hampton Inn and Suites.
