Town wants help with July 4 festival
The mayor of Coulee Dam last week asked other mayors to help with the cost of entertainment for the July 4 celebration.
The last couple of years, Coulee Dam’s town council has voted funds from its hotel/motel tax collections to put on entertainment during the area’s July 4 celebration.
Coulee Dam is asking the other municipalities that collect hotel/motel taxes to contribute to the cost of entertainment and related expenses.
Mayor Quincy Snow told the other mayors at that he has been in touch with a “Cajun” band to highlight this year’s entertainment. He added that the sound system and other related expenses total about $5,000.
July 4, this year, is on a Wednesday.
Electric City Mayor Jerry Sands stated that he thought that there was about $3,000 of hotel/motel money in his city’s budget not already allocated and that he would bring it up to his council.
The only other city with the funds, Grand Coulee, will have to be approached separately since Mayor Chris Christopherson was not present for the meeting.
Snow had stated that he thought it would take about $15,000 to put on the entertainment this year.
