LACONIA — Pat Clark, who chairs "Celebrate Laconia," the committee organizing the festivities to mark the 125th anniversary of the city in 2018, asked the City Council Tuesday for an appropriation of $40,000 in the 2016-2017 municipal budget. She explained that the funds would be applied to developing a website, designing a logo and preparing a fundraising campaign.
"We've not had time to explore all the complexities," said committee member David Stamps. "We're really asking on a wing and a prayer, but we're not trying to take the piggy bank run."
City Manager Scott Myers assured Clark that the request would be incorporated in to the budget process, which is already underway.
