The Macomb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (MACVB) is working with local artist Duke Oursler to create a stainless steel sculpture of Abraham Lincoln. But this won’t be just another sculpture; the plan calls for a bit of pizzazz.
Aldermen voted unanimously in favor of a one-year contract extension with the Macomb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. The new pact runs through August 1, 2016 and contains the same provisions as the city's current agreement with the CVB.
Macomb aldermen are contemplating whether to end the city's relationship with the Macomb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and instead have the duties handled by City Hall. It's an issue worth watching because of the economic impact of tourism.
