Fort Madison’s new tourism and marketing director sees regional cooperation as a key to bringing visitors to town.
The Fort Madison City Council created a special committee to hand out the city’s hotel/motel tax revenue to specific events or organizations.
The promotion of tourism, though, does not fall on the committee. It is handled by Fort Madison Partners.
That organization is an umbrella group that includes the Chamber of Commerce, Main Street, the Southeast Iowa Regional Riverboat Commission, and Fort Madison Economic Development Corporation.
