Discussion

Dan Archibald, Paciolan, stated that he wasn’t sure why they were being let out of their contract early.

Trustee Stanton asked what the difference between the two contracts were.

Mr. Koplin stated that Paciolan’s proposal is slightly better than Ticketmaster’s, both will bring in more revenue but it is believed that with Ticketmaster being the biggest player in the area and the added publicity that goes along with that, the Ticketmaster proposal may work out better in the long run.

There was a discussion on transitioning, how current shows will be ticketed and when the transition will be final.

Mr. Gibbs stated that much of that still needed to be worked out but that he expected it to go smoothly just like it did when we switched from Ticketmaster to Paciolan.

Roll Call:

Aye: Pilafas, Stanton, Gaeta, Arnet, Mills, Newell 

Nay:

Mayor McLeod voted aye.
