CHIPLEY — In spite of not having a quorum, the Tourism Development Council discussed several topics during Monday’s workshop — even if they couldn’t take any action on the items they discussed.

Web design was a recurring theme at the meeting. TDC member Scott Sweeney and Administrator Heather Lopez have been looking at redesigning the council’s website as well as creating a mobile website application for the TDC.

“We discussed redesigning the website to make it a little more up to date,” Lopez said. “We asked Sherry (Smith) to look at it.”

Smith is the president and owner of VTD inc., the technology design company that helped the TDC create its original website, Lopez said.

Smith submitted an outline and a cost proposal for design and development of the new website, estimating the cost of the redesign at $4,983.50.

Sweeney asked what amount the TDC could spend without being required to seek bids, and was told by Secretary Jim Town that $2,500 was the limit that the council could spend without requiring competitive bids. Anything over $10,000 and the TDC has to abide by the Washington County government policy on bidding.

“She might be right on on the costs,” Sweeney said of the proposal. Member Mary Richmond said she didn’t think the TDC paid that much for the original website work.
