MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. - It's job is to get people to visit our area.
But employees of a Treasure Coast tourism marketing arm fear their own jobs could be lost.
The Martin County Convention and Visitors Bureau is funded primarily through the county bed tax. While a new proposal by the county's parks and recreation department would raise that by a penny, it would also like to reevaluate its current contract with the CVB.
"If their ultimate goal is to increase money for purposes of beach renourishment or inlet dredging, the best way to do that is to have a really strong sales and marketing team," said Rozeta Mahboubi with the Martin County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The CVB says Martin County has had a nice rebound in tourism numbers, and dollars, as the economy has improved.
