"Ten area non-profits made their presentations to Rockport City Council at a special meeting on June 6, 2017. The groups are requesting various amounts for a total of $714,000 from the Hotel Occupancy Tax ("H.O.T.") fund, created from taxes charged to visitors staying overnight in Rockport. Projects funded must be designed to bring tourists to town ("heads and beds" is the jargon). Council will decide on the projects to be funded as part of the annual budget process and approve the requests in September." - Jeanette Larson
