"Tourism Council members told to get funding requests turned in by June 1 deadline" by: Jessica Shepard

   Paperwork for Hotel Occupancy Tax funding requests for any event in the 2018-2019 budget year are due June 1, Bay City Tourism Manager Heidi Martinez announced at Bay City Tourism Council’s regular meeting May 2.
   “I just want you guys to be aware that we are trying to get all the applications turned in for sponsorships for the 2018-2019 year,” Martinez told the council.
   “I know that Palacios has already turned in theirs for ‘Pedal Palacios’ and we just got another one (from Palacios) about some historical restoration efforts that they are going to be asking for.
   “So the plan is to get all of those dollar amounts for how much the sponsorships that we are giving are going to be, and hopefully add that into our budget for next year,” she said.
   She explained making a line item in the budget is easier to track.
   Martinez first asked council members if they needed a week to get paperwork for their next year’s events.
