President Pratl informed the Board that Chuck Tokar contacted him after the last meeting regarding the three special music events in the park the Village was proposing.  Mr. Tokar told President Pratl that he was under the impression that a couple of commissioners had changed their mind regarding this.  President Pratl then contacted the commissioners who assured him they had not agreed to the three events and that they were all in agreement as to what was discussed at the last meeting.

 

President Pratl also brought attention to the Village’s Fest permit request.  This will be discussed at the next Committee Meeting.

In regard to the Daddy/Daughter Date Night event, President Pratl stated for the record that the menu was given to four caterers in the area for bids.  Three submitted their bids, one did not.  The bid for this went to the lowest bidder which was Jack and Pat’s.  Duffle bags were ordered for the dads and blankets were ordered for the girls as gifts.  Changes will be made as to the set up to insure that the food line moves quickly.  There will also be two photographers ready to take pictures of the event.

 

In regard to the Salute to Ridge Kids, President Pratl informed the Board that Director King is looking into some changes there as well.  Several companies have been contacted for pricing on fireworks.  Details for this have not yet been worked out.  This will be discussed at the next Committee Meeting.
