Go Wichita gets budget approved amid controversy over public accountability

WICHITA — Go Wichita, the convention and visitors’ bureau, will receive its annual budget of more than $2 million in public funds amid concerns that it does not comply with open-government laws.


What looked like a routine measure on the council agenda erupted into a debate about whether private agencies funded by the public should be exempt from state open records laws.
