Money that Defi­ance City Coun­cil has ear­marked to pay for a mar­ket­ing direc­tor this year may instead be spent to help achieve the goal for which it was ini­tially bud­geted.

The $50,000 had been set aside in the 2013 bud­get to hire a city mar­ket­ing direc­tor by the Defi­ance County Com­mu­nity Improve­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (CIC) to recruit busi­ness and indus­try.

On Tues­day, a pro­posal sur­faced that included tak­ing the $50,000 line item and giv­ing it to the CIC for the pur­pose of mar­ket­ing Defi­ance only.

The $50,000 line item for the mar­ket­ing direc­tor appears in the gen­eral fund under “devel­op­ment department”.
