DDA invests inThe Romeo Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is looking to decorate and help facilitate holiday activities for the village.
The DDA voted 5-0 to re-bid its holiday decorations to cope with a $14,500 loss in its revenues. In August, the DDA agreed to a $5,500 reduction in downtown decorations as part of the cuts. However, a committee of DDA members said changes to the decorations would detract from the atmosphere, and are instead seeking a two-year contract for decorations.
The DDA also voted 4-0 to pay $1,500 to sponsor three downtown events, including a holiday open house, Ladies Night Out and Midnight Madness. DDA Treasurer Carol Humphreys abstained from the vote.
DDA Directors Ted Czajka, Sandie Lorensen and Matt Ponke were not present at the meeting.
