League City's holiday festival has a fan
There's been plenty of talk by League City Mayor Toni Randall about the city's involvement with the Holiday in the Park Parade & Festival, but at least one councilman isn't ready for the city to pull out.
The event, which is to be held Dec. 4-6 this year at League Park, costs the city $15,000 to $17,000.
Randall has expressed qualms about the cost, raising fears that the parade might have to be canceled.
But City Councilman Mike Barber said he has no interest in the city pulling its support for the Holiday in the Park Parade & Festival.
I realize that some people tend not to want a lot of fluffy things in city government, but I think supporting a parade for Christmas time is certainly of general benefit to the community," Barber said. It's a good thing. We need to do that."
Barber said, however, he understands Randall's scrutinizing the cost of assistance provided by the city's police department, public works department and parks department.
I don't think it's bad to ask the question and put a number out there," he said. I think the cost minimal compared to what we give to the community."
