Mayor responds to end of Fall Fest

A letter from the mayor’s office:

Monday night’s Council meeting resulted in a halt to Fall Fest planning. Three council members (Mike Lawrence, Jane Pope, Aaron Cook) opposed approving the claims for Fall Fest, while two members (Bill-Bill Bruner and J.R. Holdcraft) agreed to pay claims, leaving the committee unable to move forward with planning the event. This was done even though Council appropriated $350,000 for Fall Fest in 2014’s budget.

Following Fall Fest committee chairperson Marie Edwards resignation in October of 2013, Mayor Carr appointed new committee members. Under Lawrenceburg City ordinance, the Mayor has the power to appoint the members of all select committees and fill vacancies on said committees. The chairperson is then selected by the committee from among its members.

Mayor Carr selected a committee that would lend itself to improved organization, transparency and efficiency in spending. The committee would continue to utilize several of the dedicated volunteers who have effectively contributed to the success of the event for planning and execution.

“The Council’s decision last night not to approve Fall Fest claims is very unfortunate. Those who will suffer most include the organizations that use their Fall Fest proceeds as their primary funding mechanism such as the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion, Boy Scouts, Band Boosters, Eagles, CASA, and other local vendors. The impact of this decision will be absorbed by our youth and scholarship programs.” -Mayor Dennis Carr

Mayor Carr and other Fall Fest supporters would like to see a 2014 Fall Fest, but the inability to receive approval on claims poses a question as to whether the Fall Fest will happen this year.
