At a City Council Meeting on Tuesday, the city of Walhalla turned down a request from the Walhalla Civic Auditorium to help fund 2 major concert venues.  Bill Chiusano, the Civic Auditorium’s business manager, had asked the council to sponsor concerts by Lorrie Morgan and Ronnie Milsap.  The council turned down the request for $37,500 during the meeting Tuesday night.  Mayor Danny Edwards stated the city doesn’t have the money to meet the request.  According to the Auditorium Board members, about 40 percent of the audience for the Auditorium shows comes from outside the immediate area.  The Auditorium is a venue for around 50 acts per year.  The concerts were to commemorate the Auditorium’s 10th anniversary.
