Some Falls City facilities remain closed

(KLZA)-- Falls City Council members voted to continue keeping Candlelight Cabin and Prichard Auditorium closed to the public through the month of June when they met Monday evening. 

While other parks in the City are open,  these facilities will remain closed for now.  

A request from the Falls City Chamber of Commerce to use Stanton Lake Park on Friday, June 19 for a concert by local band Trainwreck was denied when Mayor Shawna Bindle cast the deciding vote.

Council member Mitch Merz says he supports such events normally, but doesn't think now is the time to have such events when there is no way to predict how many people may show up. 

Council members Merz, Lucas Froeschl and Carla Rhodd cast the nay votes.

Council member Amber Holle is the Chamber Director and abstained and Council member Jim Wisdom was absent creating a 3-3 tie.  

Mayor Bindle voted no, saying she does not think it sends a good message.  

Council members did approve a resolution regarding the use of municipal property for sports and other recreational activities.   The action requires individuals and sponsoring groups, wishing to use the playing or practice fields, courts or grounds or other City facilities to enter into the COVID-19 License and Management Agreement for the use of the property.

All participants and spectators will need to comply with all federal, state and local laws and regulations,  all directed health measures and guidelines, and all security policies established by the City relating to COVID-19 or other safety or hygiene precautions.
