City to look elsewhere for festival organizer

— The City Council tonight will rescind tourism funds originally awarded to the Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber is declining $10,000 to organize the Lighted Farm Implement Parade because it is disbanding this year.

The council will send the money and event promotion back to the city’s Lodging Tax Advisory Committee for review and recommendation.

The council meets at 6:30 p.m. in the Law and Justice Center, 401 Homer St.
