Recommendation to Lancaster County Board

14 May

The Lincoln Flying Disc Club is cooperating with the Lincoln Parks Foundation who requested $10,000 to the Lancaster County Visitors Promotion Committee, which makes recommendations to the Lancaster County Board about how to distribute revenue collected from a 2 percent lodging tax. Let’s hope the Board approves!
