VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County Commissioners have moved forward on making a new convention center a reality.
Members recently passed an ordinance that establishes a new, non-reverting account.
This account will hold funds that have been dedicated for Capital Improvement Board projects.
In the case of the convention center, the City of Terre Haute and Vigo County have dedicated $10 million each toward the project.
The Vigo County Convention and Visitor's Bureau will chip in $5 million.
Operations of the center will be funded by the recent passing of the food and beverage tax.
A proposal is expected to be made to the capital improvement board next month.
