Yeah... seriously. They are wasting $76K of our money.

These are the idiots running this city that have some grandiose idea that this city is a tourist attraction.

These mental midgets should be put away in a an asylum.

How's about instead, I'll keep voting against these jerks and telling others about the crap they're doing, so they'll get off their ass and vote them out. Then you can STFU and MOVE before you're tarred and feathered and put on a rail.

I have lived in Deer Park many years and I would not want to live anywhere else. It is a great place to raise a family and compared to other cities in Harris/Galveston county it has a low crime rate. Advertising it as a tourist attraction is way off.

On the other hand if tourist do flock here....there certainly will not be any shortages of hotel/motel rooms to accompany them.

For lever tone criticizing this - learn the facts 1st. Educate yourselves and your mouths 1st before going off halfcocked.

The money spent is coming from Hotel-Motel tax funds. These revenues are restricted by State law on what they can be spent on. The State of Texas mandates that a percentage of the funds be spent on tourism.

Granted, tourism in Deer Park is a crazy idea. If the money wasn't spent on this, it would have to sit there - and then you all would be griping about money sitting there.

Regardless, promoting tourism can't be a bad thing.

the hike and bike trail will bring many. Perhaps they, the city, are counting the 18K people that come to Deer Park daily for jobs, but don't live here. Some, as reported by the city news, drive as much as 50 miles each way to work in Deer Park, so perhaps the city is confused as to who the tourists are.
