June 19 Recreation Committee Meeting
Rodeo Committee submitted a request for access to the 20 acres by the sportsgrounds 2-3 years in advance so that they can begin landscaping it. They also request to use the bleachers and picnic tables from the Rec Plex for the event. Committee discussed offering the bleachers for a fee and then making a rental contract.
Jordy is to send a letter that the Town is not prepared to retrofit the proposed land at this time and that the site was never given the go-ahead but was more of an idea for the future. Jordy noted that the Rodeo has only completed one year and he would like to see some sustainability before the Town incurs such a task.
Potato Fest 2020
Plan is to start small and get a good nucleus to run the event. Donna (Smith) would like to speak with local potato farmers to see what dates and months work best for them to attend. Ideas are still floating around for a venue but the Rec Plex was brought up. Will form a committee and begin meeting in July.
