After the Pulaski County Council last week approved the advertisement of a $10,000 expense to feature the county in a PBS program, the second PBS program Nathan Origer, executive director of the Economic Development Commission, has brought to the council. Previously, Origer received approval for a $10,000 expense to feature the county in a program aimed at promoting tourism for counties in Indiana.
Last night, Origer received permission for the expense from the county commissioners pending council approval. He explained the Community Development Commission board responded favorably to the idea of looking into this venture as well, in addition to “Savor Indiana.” This PBS feature, called “Extraordinary Indiana,” normally runs $25,000, and Origer said it has since been discounted temporary to $10,000 and it’s the perfect time to take up the offer.
The council approved the advertisement of the expense, but the decision as to whether or not to proceed with spending the money will be made at their next meeting.
