Karaoke contest proposed
Coulee Area Park and Recreation District commissioners heard a proposal to use North Dam Park as a venue for a regional karaoke contest this summer.
Electric City Mayor Jerry Sands proposed a contest over three monthly events, culminating in a Sept. 1 grand finale with cash prizes awarded in a “Coulee Idol” contest.
“I’m for pursuing it,” CAPRD Chairman Phil Hansen said.
The commissioners agreed, voting to “look into it.”
In other business, commissioners discussed a timeline for determing a contractor to maintain North Dam Park this summer. A public notice of a request of proposals will be published in The Star next week. A contract should be awarded by April 13.
