Mayor concerned about management of convention center

VICKSBURG — The city of Vicksburg will hold VenuWorks more accountable about its management of the Vicksburg Convention Center and Auditorium, Mayor George Flaggs Jr. says.

The Vicksburg Post reports the mayor is threatening to find a new management company if a better working relationship can’t be achieved.

Flaggs, in office a little more than a month, says he became concerned about the center’s operations after reviewing Vicksburg’s contract with VenuWorks.

The mayor says he was especially concerned about facility manager Troy Thorn’s position that convention centers are expected to lose money.
