Vail council holds special meeting Thursday

Daily Staff Report

The Vail Town Council will hold a special meeting at 4 p.m., Thursday, in the conference room of the community development department.

The two discussion items are a further reconsideration of dates for a summer farmer’s market and additional funding for the Fourth of July parade.

The council in March decided to include a July 4 date for the farmer’s market. Town Manager Stan Zemler recommended excluding that date from the schedule. The council will re-visit its March decision.

The council will also examine its options to free up more funding for the Vail America Days celebration. The town’s Committee on Special Events had originally agreed to a proposal to provide $25,000 for this year’s parade. With costs piling up rapidly, Eagle Valley Events, the Eagle-based firm hired to promote Vail America Days, has requested more money.

The council will examine its options for providing more money to the July 4 event.
