• Little Rock's tourism agency wants to take control of one of the capital city's most popular destinations. City directors are considering a proposal to turn over River Market operations to the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau. The one-year experiment, with an option to continue beyond 2011, would save the city nearly $250,000 a year and give the bureau control over yet another tourism venue. ... The agency already operates the city's downtown parking garages, the Statehouse Convention Center and the Robinson Center. The idea of the commission taking over the River Market has been floated before -- Mayor Mark Stodola asked commissioners in 2007 to consider the idea. ... Commissioners haven't guaranteed that it will continue its voluntary financial aid for next year. Without the proposed agreement, Little Rock could be on the hook again in 2010 for all the venue's expenses.
