Encampment to look for CCVC rep, approves employees and liquor licenses

McKinney explained his reason for departing the CCVC.

“It is because of the bylaws I have to leave after two consecutive terms and I think it important we get someone representing Encampment,” said McKinney. He told of the CCVC possibly setting up a tier system for grants which meant funds would be based on how large a draw of visitors was to an events.

“This would not effect Woodchoppers, but it might the Winter Carnival,” McKinney said. “It hasn’t passed yet, but I wanted you to be aware.”
