GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - An agreement to fund a new visitor’s center in Gillette has been put off by officials who have questioned the location and who will own the new property.

The Gillette News Record reports (https://bit.ly/1FVKttq ) the Campbell County commissioners tabled the agreement Tuesday, opposing two sections of the document.

Commissioner Micky Shober questioned whether the center should be restricted to city limits and said he didn’t agree with naming Campbell County Joint Powers Lodging Tax Board as owners of the property.

Gillette Attorney Charlie Anderson said city officials want to have the center in Gillette because the majority of lodging tax revenue comes from the city. He also said ownership of the property would give the board more independence.

The Gillette Convention and Visitors Bureau has been around for 30 years.
