A guidebook offering information to new residents of Mason County is available through the Maysville-Mason County Area Chamber of Commerce.
According to Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Vicki Steigleder, the guidebook presents information on tourism and economics.
“We have these for people who are visiting/moving to Mason County or businesses who are trying to bring potential employees to the area,” she said. “It’s good information to have. Before I moved to Kentucky, I had to go to the (Department of Motor Vehicles) to renew my license, but when I moved to Kentucky-you don’t do that here and when you move state to state, you understand that everyone does things differently, so you want to have this kind of information available.”
According to Steigleder, the book features information on employers in the county, as well as tourism information, including places to see, shop and eat. There are photographs of events in the community.
The guidebook will be available at local hotels, the tourism office and the Chamber of Commerce building. There is also a .pdf copy on the Chamber of Commerce website.
“It’s an ongoing book that we update about every three years, but it provides good information on what Maysville and Mason County has to offer; the quality of life here, and we want people to pick them up. It’s there even for current residents of the area, if they want to find out more about what is happening in their community,” she said.
