60th Anniversary Wrap-up Meeting Wednesday

The long-awaited, and long-delayed, wrap-up meeting for the staff and volunteers who worked so diligently last year to produce the three-day 60th Anniversary Celebration will finally happen this Wednesday, April 9, 2014 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) adjacent to the Police Headquarters at 99 Fair Drive.  You can read the entire 52 page agenda HERE.
That report includes the January 30, 2014 Executive Summary of the 60th Anniversary Event Findings produced by the City Staff, plus some very detailed fiscal summaries.  City CEO Tom Hatch and event Chairman Mike Scheafer will conduct the meeting.  Committee members plus members of the public will have the chance to offer their thoughts.
This could be a very interesting meeting.  Because it's been delayed for three-quarters of a year the concerns and criticisms that could have been thoroughly vented last summer have festered to the point where many of the volunteers have become not just concerned, but very angry.  It's my hope that the meeting will be a chance for some constructive discussion about the good and bad of the event - a chance for everyone to learn so the same mistakes are not made again.
 I plan on attending, so will report after.

How does the big expenditure for the celebration fit in with Jim's mission to keep the city financially solvent? I suppose this event was to keep the brand strong.

Casual, no, it was a fundraiser for Scott Baugh. There is a lot of unaccounted for money.
