CSISD & CVB Work Out Holding Future HS Graduations at ReedFeatured Stories, News Thursday, May 23rd, 2013
The recent agreement between the convention and visitors bureau and A&M involving the redevelopment of Kyle Field was discussed by local government officials this week.
College Station school board member Jeff Harris says he and CVB board chairman Hunter Goodwin quickly resolved concerns about holding future high school graduation ceremonies at Reed Arena.
Harris says he and Goodwin “jotted out a proposed solution on a notepad, (and) within an hour our respective staffs were communicating with each other and the attorneys were drafting documents to formalize the solution.”
Harris says “it’s a great example of good governance and how the local governments work together to keep from tripping over each other as we’re trying to move forward to make sure that each group knows what the other is doing so that we don’t inadvertenly create problems.”
A&M will be giving discounted rates for using on-campus facilities, including Reed Arena, in exchange for receiving hotel occupancy tax money towards the Kyle Field project.
