To help get the most out of its shoestring budget, the Downtown Lodi Business Partnership is demanding more from its board of directors in 2011.

In anticipation of the City of Lodi reducing its annual funding to the non-profit agency, DLBP executive director Jaime Watts said she's hoping to make board members accountable for a variety of tasks at Monday's board of directors meeting. By having directors oversee certain tasks, Watts said the DLBP will have a better chance at serving Downtown business owners with limited resources.

    I'm looking positively that the board, with its 2 new members that are driven to make downtown Lodi move forward positively, will assure that Ms. Watts either performs, or move that the board and city of Lodi find new leadership that is capable of being executive director.

    Dough beat me to the punch: what DOES the Executive Director do?

    All of the things listed in the article are tasks that I would expect Jamie to do, execpt maybe hang the banners & signs. The rest are simple, and most are marketing stuff. And as the Exec Dir I would EXPECT that she go and introduce herself to new merchants, explain the DLBP, and that they will be receiving a membership fee invoice in the next few weeks.

    I really have to wonder how long downtown to survive.

    Ms. Watts, just what is it you do, or even have done, as executive director these past few years to "earn" those big bucks?
