Council To Decide Thursday On Fate Of Hot Air Jubilee
Jackson City Council will hold a special meeting Thursday, July 5th at noon. On the agenda is the consideration of the request from the Hot Air Jubilee to conduct their annual event at Ella Sharp Park July 20th through July 22nd. The Council previously delayed a decision on the permit until some questions could be answered on how much the city would have to pay for their part of the event. According to documents on the city’s website, if the council approves the permit on Thursday the city will pay $2,700 for overtime police, $300 for DPW personnel and since the fireworks have been cancelled the city will not have any fire fighters on hand. The original cost to the city was going to be $10,170 after the revision the cost is $3,000. Mayor Martin Griffin previously told WKHM he thought the permit would be approved.
