The Morehead News invited Rowan County Judge-Executive Harry Clark, Morehead Tourism Commission chairperson Keith Kappes and Morehead Mayor Laura White-Brown to discuss the future of tourism in Rowan County.

This is the first episode of regular series to feature local persons discussing local topics.

White-Brown was unable to join us due to an unexpected appointment that day.

One note of correction: Clark mentions a 7% tax on hotels. He later corrected, after filming, that it would be 4% for transient rooms in the city and 3% for those outside the city. Hotels and other lodging facilities in the city will not be double taxed.

This was filmed on Friday, Nov. 22.
