The Watertown City Council Finance/Safety Committee heard a presentation from Jon Schmieder with the Huddle Up Group. Watertown Convention and Visitor’s Bureau Head Julie Knutson says that Schmieder has national experience with sports tourism and on Friday he explained ways the city of Watertown could better utilize and maximize its sporting facilities. Schmider says their goal is to increase the sports market for communities.
He says, if hired by the city, they would come to down and begin their work.
No decision has been made to hire the Huddle Up Group yet but the idea to hire he group will be passed along to the full council. Alderman Glen Vilhauer commented on the presentation and added some info about the latest sales tax revenues, saying they’re looking pretty good right now for Watertown.
