Director of chamber and tourism effort tells city council Midway will be promoted more effectively

The executive director of the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce told the Midway City Council Monday that the county’s tourism effort, which the Chamber runs, is going to be more pro-active. Tami Vater said she wants to be transparent and to encourage the various interests in the county to work together.

Vater’s visit was planned a month ago, but came in the wake of the chamber’s withdrawal from the inter-local agreement between the county and its two cities for tourism promotion, an agreement the chamber had promoted before Vater arrived. Also, Midway was left out of a recent Woodford County tourism brochure, bringing complaints from some in the town.
