City Council Approves Stage Plan

The Mt. Carmel City Council has decided to have Market Street MTC be in charge of constructing a new stage for the uptown amphitheater. Last month, Terry Beckerman of Market Street MTC presented plans to build a 28 by 30 foot stage with a gabled roof. Two weeks ago, Cory Casburn of Art and Community Together appeared before commissioners and was critical of Mayor Bill Hudson and the entire amphitheater. He asked the council for a two month extension before a decision was made to develop his own proposal. But last night, commissioners approved the original proposal saying Casburn was welcome to look into plans and raise funds for a stage at a different location. Finance Commissioner Joe Judge said there was an important reason the original proposal was approvedā€¦


The commissioners and Hudson were unanimous in their support for the Market Street MTC stage plan.
