Symphony of Lights, city reach agreement

Herald Staff Report

CLINTON — The Symphony of Lights setup will continue as planned this weekend.

The decision was made following negotiations between event organizers and city officials to resolve issues that arose earlier this week.  

On Wednesday, the City Services committee moved to stop the group from setting up until a signed contract and insurance documents were presented to the city.  

According to Symphony of Lights Chairman Chris Dinning and City Attorney Jeff Farwell, the group has signed the contract that was passed by the City Council in September and provided proof of insurance, resolving the issues that were discussed by the committee Wednesday.  

The contract leases the drive in Eagle Point Park to the SOL for the annual holiday festival, but unlike previous years, does not grant them control over the lodge.
