She <br />stated that it would be a night event and then potentially have some day <br />time activities however she and Commissioner Wachsmith have only briefly <br />discussed that possibility. <br /> <br />There was discussion of potential conflicts with Pioneer Days as well as <br />the potential for the events to complement each other. There was <br />discussion of time sensitivity to start promoting the event if the Board <br />approved the event so that Director Porterfield could lock in the <br />performer. She stated that the spreadsheet doesn’t show any of the <br />sponsorships she is anticipating and if she is successful then that will <br />change the numbers for projected revenue. <br /> <br />There was also discussion of bringing in food trucks vs. catering. <br /> <br />The Board approved Ms. Porterfield to proceed with the event and felt it <br />was a great opportunity for the residents of Kittitas County, since <br />there is not anything on the 4th of July currently down in the Lower <br />County. <br /> <br />The meeting was adjourned at 9:20 a.m. <br /> <br />KITTITAS COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
