Prescott cancels tourism promotion contract

The Prescott Area Coalition for Tourism won’t handle tourism promotion for Prescott next year.

City Manager Steve Norwood sent a letter to the coalition’s president telling the organization the Arizona city won’t renew the tourism agreement.

A majority of city councilors who discussed the issue last month appear to support a city tourism office.

Norwood says he notified the coalition as a professional courtesy.

Prescott has contracted with the organization for the past decade.

It will pay about $167,000 for that job in the fiscal year that ends June 30.

Coalition board president David Maurer says the letter wasn’t a surprise.

He says the organization’s executive committee will meet next week to start discussing the coalition’s future.

More than half its budget came from Prescott.
