    On Tuesday, a day after a hefty property transfer became public in the Lorain County auditor's office, Riddell confirmed it is moving to North Ridgeville - just two miles down the road from its Elyria facility. The move has been rumored for months since it was learned Elyria city officials were hammering out an incentive deal to try to entice Riddell to stay, and more recently as North Ridgeville took steps to welcome a new business, although keeping the company's identity concealed.

  18. Director of Lorain County Visitors Bureau leavingRead the original story w/Photo

    May 19, 2016 | The Chronicle-Telegram

    AMHERST TWP. - The last remaining employee of the Lorain County Visitors Bureau is leaving. Executive director Barb Bickel confirmed Wednesday that Friday will be her last day. Bickel had been working under a temporary contract with the county since the county commissioners voted to effectively take control of the Visitors Bureau in February following a contentious dispute with the former board that oversaw the organization. "Leaving is like walking away from my own child," Bickel wrote in a statement. "I will now look to the county commissioners in hopes that they will honor and respect the work of all those who've had to separate from their hard work that became a passion." The Visitors Bureau's other employees all departed after the county takeover. Commissioner Matt Lundy said Jennifer Kennedy, a freelance marketing professional who has previously done contract work for The Chronicle-Telegram, will take over as interim director of the Visitors Bureau until a new full-time staff can be found. Lundy said the Visitors Bureau, which also is known as Visit Lorain County, will now operate as a county agency, but there also will be a nonprofit arm as well that he hopes will allow the organization to take in grants that aren't available to government entities. A five- to seven-member board will oversee the government agency with the help of a non-voting advisory board with up to 14 members, he said. Lundy said the county is advertising for a director, a marketing and sales person and a secretary to staff the agency. He also said that Bickel, who spent a total of 15 years at the organization, including 10 as director, was not asked to leave and could apply to serve as director of the new agency if she was so inclined. "Barb has done a good marketing job," he said. "She's been very passionate about tourism and we wish her well." Beginning last year, the commissioners had pressed the then-board members and Bickel to change the direction of the agency, pushing them to open their meetings and records to the public and accept a smaller board with more representation from the commissioners. Lundy and others also had complained about a perceived lack of focus on the eastern side of the county, especially from Avon, where officials have long felt their needs were ignored. The former board had denied they were ignoring Avon and insisted that they were cooperating with the commissioners' efforts to bring greater transparency to the board. They also agreed to a smaller board and began holding public meetings. But the commissioners ultimately decided they weren't getting the level of cooperation they wanted and voted to halt funding to Visit Lorain County, which received the vast majority of its budget from a 3 percent bed tax collected by the county from those staying in hotels and other lodgings around the county. Before the remaining board members resigned en masse following the county takeover, several questioned whether the commissioners had an actual plan to increase tourism numbers in the county. The commissioners also were criticized for taking control of Visit Lorain County just months before the Republican National Convention comes to Cleveland in July. Lundy said the commissioners have plans to better spread out the roughly $500,000 the county collects from the bed tax. He said the money will be used to promote more community events, including dispensing grants to other communities, and to create apps for smart phones and other devices to promote tourism in the county.
