Sharing the Cost of Parades has Gone Back to City Council for Further Study

 

facebook

The Yakima City Council wants to share the cost of parades and big events downtown but it did not take action on a proposed policy during the council meeting on Tuesday night. Currently the city pays for security and traffic management for all approved events, but under a new proposal those costs would now be shared or paid in full by the event organizers not the city. City Manager Tony O’Rourke says last year the city paid around $60,000 to support downtown events. But on Tuesday the Yakima City Council decided to pass the issue to a city subcommittee to gather more information at get back to the city council on a later date.

In other business the city gave thumbs up to three cruises along Yakima avenue this summer. The cruises are planned for June, July and September.
