Liberty County receives CVB spending plan

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect a correction, which will appear in Sunday's print edition. The Liberty County Board of Commissioners received the fiscal-year 2016 budget for the Liberty County Convention and Visitors Bureau earlier this month. An article on page 10A Wednesday incorrectly stated that the commissioners approved the budget, but the CVB's board approves its own spending plan. The commissioners simply received a copy of the budget.
