Vice President Adams said that the Economic Recovery Committee had hit a bump.  The City did not want Fort Mohave or Mohave Valley on the brochures, only Bullhead City.  Vice President Adams said they still have 50,000 original brochures left.  The Mohave Valley Daily News has 20,000 brochures for inserting to their sister publications in Southern California.  They are going to advertise with Around the River magazine a full page ad for three months.  They are also going to have a 1/6 ad in the Where to Retire magazine with a free ad in back of this magazine.  Director Camacho checked her phone and said that we are not listed on the Chamber of Commerce’s website.  She felt that since the Mohave Valley Contractors Association gave $5,000 to the Economic Recovery Committee, the Association should be on the website.  Vice President Adams said he will have that fixed.
