Who in their right mind would plan a vacation to Beaver County?! Hell, people are scrambling to get out. Tony asked if it was cost effective??? Did he delve any deeper into it or just think he had a stellar question? The idea to spend more tax dollars to bring people to the county is ludicrous. What in the world would they be coming here to do, might I ask?

Beaver County is a place everyone is trying to get out of or trying to keep from coming here. It is ridiculous to spend one single dollar to promote tourism to Beaver County, and any dollar spent on this should be considered as an effort of a possible kickback scheme.
There are too many elderly people and children in Beaver County who can not afford to eat, use $160,000 to help these people!

LOL Talk about living beyond your means! Easy to do on someone else’s money. Tourism expenses should be budgeted appropriately. How do county departments grow to be independent of the commissioners and their assigned duties?

Let’s brainstorm ideas what to do with the money. Clean up the walking park at Brady’s Run- it’s really filthy and full of garbage. Clean up the litter this time of year- it’s EVERYWHERE and very unpleasing to the eye. Invest in bike paths. If Beaver County would attract anyone for non-special events, it would be for outdoor activities. Build parking for the tree and maple syrup festivals- no one wants to ride those buses. Create areas for camping and fishing along the rivers and creeks. Where can you camp short term in Beaver County? I don’t even know. Invest in a ghost tour for Beaver- fun and historic. Invest in podcasts and historic walking tours- very popular. Improve any downtown streetscape- Beaver, Beaver Falls, Vanport, Monaca, Ambridge, Midland, New Brighton, Rochester. Advertising in Times Square and The Wall Street Journal? Just stupid. Who’s getting free trips to NYC out of that?

Speaking of walking trails, get rid of the pooping geese everywhere. You can’t even walk on the paved ‘sidewalk’ along the Beaver River. Hire those dogs for a month-geese will learn soon that it’s not the holiday inn, nor a maternity ward.
