NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce tourism council wants to ensure its members’ voices are heard before the city begins the search for a new tourism director.

Connie Taunton stepped down last week as director of the Natchez Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1fdS8Qo ) Mississippi Tourism Association President Lyn Fortenbery told the council the purpose of a Monday meeting council members attended was to make sure they have a voice in the hiring process.

Alderwoman Sarah Smith said she believes it is important the city hears input for the tourism council before starting the search for a new director.

Smith said the city will likely hire an interim director to lead the CVB during the search for a full-time director.
