Sonora, CA — A meeting over a proposed downtown events series that Sonora’s administrator describes as “a substantial commitment” is back on the calendar.
Friday, Nov. 13 is the rescheduled date for Sonora City Council’s Finance Committee to discuss and provide the council members with its recommendation regarding a partnership proposal from the Sonora Chamber of Commerce for a “Sonora Signature Events Series” that could kick off as soon as next summer.
As previously reported, the series is being described as one that would, with an estimated annual $85,000 commitment from the city, take place over each of the next five summers across different downtown venues; among them the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.
According City Administrator Tim Miller, the meeting had to be rescheduled from its original Oct. 29 date due to the nonavailability of at least one committee member. Sometime after the finance committee submits its thoughts and opinion on the chamber’s proposal the council will make a final determination. The Nov. 13 meeting is slated to begin at 1:30 p.m. in the city hall’s first floor conference room (94 N. Washington St.).
