A budget for the year 2014 showing total income exceeding expenses by more than $62,000 was approved Tuesday by members of the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau board of directors.
Figures for the 2014 budget show actual income of $361,614 and expenses totaling $298,817. The document shows the largest portion of the bureau’s money comes from a pair of sales taxes, with $172,666 coming from a state tax (hotel/motel) and $176,500 from a local one-cent tax.
On the expense side of the ledger, the bureau spent $96,844 for advertisement, promotions and printing. That was the largest expense item in the budget.
