State officials are considering closing the tourist information areas at all eight visitor centers as a way to save money.


Visit Beloit Director Martha Mitchell doesn't consider it a good idea. She says the Beloit Visitor's Center is the busiest of all, located on the border. Mitchell says this could be costly for the state, considering the hundreds-of-thousands of visitors which come through Rock county.


Volunteers will be considered to fill the void if the state cuts back on personnel.
