MOUNT VERNON — An annual report from the Knox County Convention and Visitors Bureau was shared Monday morning when director Pat Crow met the Knox County Board of Commissioners.
“We had a good year. Our budget was pretty much on target. There was nothing remarkable,” said Crow in reviewing details of the 2013 budget. One unscheduled extra expense in 2013 was a 20-foot trailer purchased for $8,378. Crow said that equipment taken to festivals had been accumulating, and it was becoming necessary to have a trailer to haul equipment to different destinations. This was made even more difficult as storage space beneath the Woodward Opera House was disappearing with construction projects now underway. A small budget deficit at the end of the year virtually equaled the purchase of the trailer.
Total income for the CVB in 2013 totaled $149,647, while expenses for the year came to $157,972.
Also purchased in 2013 was a network server which Crow said should last for five years. “We are a cash business. We decided to take an entire deduction in one year,” said Crow, choosing not to have the encumbrance of depreciation carrying through for five years.
