Event Planner an idea whose time has come?

Seneca has one. And now might be the right time for Walhalla to consider an event planner for its city. Budget chairman Tjay Bagwell introduced the idea last night at City Hall. His idea was music to the ears of Councilwoman Jennifer Woodward Crawford. “When we did the grant for the Depot Park, I threw in there like strings in the evening, yoga in the park—-great ideas! People will come. But you have to have someone who is going to advertise it, who is going to plan it….” In place of a pay raise for Walhalla employees, the city’s elected leaders are considering awarding a couple of additional paid holidays. Mayor Danny Edwards mentioned the possibility of adding Martin Luther King Day as a paid holiday for Walhalla’s workers.
