GREENFIELD — While more than $56,000 went to various groups in 2012 to promote tourism, members of the Hancock County Tourism Commission say more should be done this year to attract visitors.

A report released earlier this month shows $56,511 was spent on 12 organizations in 2012 for events designed to boost hotel visits and shopping at local stores and restaurants. That’s shy of the commission’s $80,000 goal, and members of the commission hope they will have more of a presence in 2013.
