City commission to consider special event fees Monday
POLSON — The Polson City Commission will consider a proposal to adjust special event fees at 7 p.m. Monday, April 17.
Pat Nowlen, the city’s parks and recreation director, made a preliminary proposal to the commission last month. The proposal would recoup the cost of services and equipment the city provides for special events, such as cones, barricades and signs. Special events cost the city $29,980 last year, Nowlen said. Some rates would increase and others decrease, he said.
On Friday, city manager Mark Shrives said the city Parks Board was still working on the proposal. The commission will consider what’s equitable for both the city and special event permit holders, he said. Public comment is welcome at the upcoming meeting.
