New board named to oversee Mayo Civic Center operations
Five members selected from 18 applicants will make up a new board to oversee operations at Mayo Civic Center, plus the local convention and visitors bureau.
“I think we are all extremely anxious and looking for lots of opportunities and excited to see this board come together,” Rochester City Council Randy Staver said Monday as the council approved the new board.
The board members were recommended by Rochester City Administrator Steve Rymer after he and City Attorney Jason Loos interviewed 18 applicants. Those members will take the reins of the yet-unnamed nonprofit entity in an effort to reduce costs connected to the two agencies that oversee and book the Civic Center.
