Contingency plan funded by contingency fund

Posted: Wednesday, Apr 9th, 2014

An unanimous decision, the Page Tourism Board voted in favor of granting the John Wesley Powell Museum an additional one-time $25,000 for its ongoing renovations on April 2. The final vote and approval now lies in the hands of city council during their meeting on April 9. The money, which is planned to come from the city’s contingency fund, will go towards the continued expansion of the museum’s infrastructure to better accommodate its status as the town’s de facto visitor center.

The museum previously provided visitor services from the 1970s through 2006 after the Tourism Bureau took over the duties under a contract with the city. In 2011, the bureau closed the short-lived visitor center and returned the services to the museum. A previously agreed upon stipend from the city of $30,000 paid annually also carried back over to the museum for preservation and archival services.
