Summer Celebration Update
The City of Mercer Island Parks and Recreation Department is unable to coordinate the 2019 Summer Celebration Festival. Due to insufficient funding, the reduction of staff, and the failure of Proposition 1, the City was forced to make a number of reductions in non-essential programs and services in order to balance the 2019-2020 Biennial Budget. Given the City Council's subsequent directive to make a long-term plan for insufficient revenues in the future, spending was further reduced by an additional $1.2 million.
While it is unfortunate that we canít get together for Summer Celebration, we look forward to seeing you at the Mostly Music in the Park Concerts, and Shakespeare in the Park this summer.
If you are interested in sponsoring either of these events please contact Diane Mortenson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
