Some business owners tell us they’ve seen a 20 percent drop in sales lately compared to past years. Business owners say that’s because they’re feeling the effects of not being a part of the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
You may remember last year the city decided not to renew its membership because the city didn’t have the funds.
So businesses want the city to pay for their advertising? If they are so darned smart why don’t THEY pay to be included in Visitors Bureau?
