Citizen groups appeal for HOT fund allocations

Approximately 20 citizens representing five or more volunteer organizations who conduct events and/or maintain facilities that attract tourists appealed to the Franklin County Commissioners Court to distribute Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) funds in their 2020 fiscal year.

Former county judge Jerry Hubbell served as the primary spokesperson for those present. See the July 25 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-herald for more about this discussion.
