The Jackson/Teton County Joint Travel and Tourism Board last week approved their annual budget totaling $2.5-million which Chairman Stephen Price says includes funds to help pay for visitor services at the Interagency Visitor Center on North Cache Street and the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce. Price says the board approved approximately $350-thousand to Chamber for visitor services. Facing cuts in federal funding, the Elk Refuge visitor center also needed assistance and was granted $10-thousand. The budget year begins July 1st. Between now and then, Price says a subcommittee is to review the grant requests submitted to the board by Friday afternoon for consideration in their July meeting. The budget also includes a contract with Denver-based Cactus Communications for promotion of the area – particularly during the valley’s shoulder seasons – and for increased utilization of social media.
