Boone County Named Top Ten by Center for Digital Government

July 2, 2015

The Central Missouri Events Center Review Committee will have its first organizational meeting on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at 9:30AM in the conference room of the Central Missouri Events Center. The meeting will also include a tour of the property.

The CMEC, formerly known as the Boone County Fairgrounds, has a long history, both in regard to the events held there and the attempts to maintain its viability for the citizens of Boone County. While the CMEC Review Committee will not be making an attempt to rework past management models, it will utilize the myriad reports, studies, reviews and historical documents amassed over time from a wide variety of sources and perspectives in order to make recommendations to the County Commission as to determine the best way to move forward with this asset.

The CMEC Review Committee is comprised of volunteer members from the community. Members of the CMEC Review Committee include Mike Alden, Dan Atwill, Teresa Maledy, Mary Anne McCollum, Mayor Bob McDavid, James Whitt and Roger Wilson.
