While budget was a big item on yesterday’s agenda at the county, the tourism committee got some other news from the director of tourism. Amanda Virtanen showed a video for the first time which they’re using as a marketing tool this year. It promotes all the elements the county has to offer with the theme of unwinding in the Highlands. The final product isn’t ready yet, but the committee and the public at the meeting were happy to see the development. Virtanen says a big focus in 2015 will be food tourism, using the money from a grant they just received. She’s also submitting a budget report to council which is less than what she budgeted for last year.
