County retains tourism specialists in 2018

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 8 January 2018 at 10:54 am

ALBION – Orleans County is keeping two tourism specialists while also employing a full-time tourism director for the first time in 2018.

The Legislature last week approved contracts with Lynne Menz and Mike Waterhouse.

Menz was the tourism director until seeking a full-time return to her private business, Lynne Menz Designs. The County Legislature last week approved paying Menz up to $12,840 for tourism coordinator services in 2018 and up to $28,000 to Lynne Menz Designs for design services – advertising design, publication design, social media, photography and video production.

The county has hired a full-time tourism director for the first time. Dawn Borchert has worked as executive director for the New York State Travel Industry Association since 2004. She has 27 years in the business including five years as the tourism marketing director for the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce. Borchert started the new job with the county last week.

The county also is keeping a contract with retired charter boat captain Mike Waterhouse for sportsfishing promotion services. Waterhouse will be paid $22 an hour, up to $7,500, for his work representing the county at trade shows from Jan. 1 to May 1, with matching I Love NY funds covering the cost.
