The City of Newport is seeking applications from individuals interested in serving on the Destination Newport Committee. The Destination Newport Committee meets monthly at City Hall, and is charged with advising the City Council regarding the preparation of the advertising budget funded by the city’s room tax.
The Committee also makes recommendations regarding the placement of advertising, the hiring of advertising consultants, and all other matters relating to advertising the city as a tourist destination. There is currently one vacancy that must be filled by the owner or manager of a lodging establishment within the city.
Anyone interested in serving on this committee should apply using the city’s committee application which is found on the city website at www.newportoregon.gov; click on “City;” then on “Committees;” and then on “Application for Committee/Commission.” The completed form can be submitted electronically. Copies of the committee application form can also be obtained by contacting the City Manager’s Office at 169 SW Coast Highway, Newport, Oregon 97365, or by calling 541.574.0613.
The Destination Newport Committee will interview interested volunteers and forward a recommendation to the City Council for formal appointment.
