Coahoma Tourism Board Search Saga Continues

Chicot Memorial

COAHOMA COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — The Coahoma County Tourism board held a special meeting Friday to again close the application window for a new executive director. At least for now. Search committee members Donald Green and Jon Levingston told the board that the committee wanted a broader pool of applicants, including tourism industry professionals from outside the area, from which to make their recommendations. Levingston suggested that all 13 current applicants should reapply with a cover letter, resume and three references but acting board chairman Al Jones said the search committee didn’t have the authority to reopen applications. Board members took the matter under advisement and will seek legal counsel before making a decision, but if they decide to reopen applications the new deadline would be later than August 15th.
