Following some recent feedback regarding the county’s policy for waiving fees for use of county buildings, the Seward County Commission will hear from another local group this evening requesting fees be waived for an event.

In 2016, Liberal did not have a Cinco de Mayo celebration. Organizers are currently in the process of planning for this year’s event, scheduled for May 6 and 7, and in the past, fees for use of the Activity Center have been waived for the community celebration.

If denied, the fee for use of the main hall in the Activity Center for the two-day event would be $1,000, according to information in the agenda packet for tonight’s meeting.

Events taking place during this year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration include a pageant to crown the queen. That event, the information said, has a $5 admission fee, with money from admission going to fund scholarships.

The following day’s festivities have no admission, and that event is open to the entire public. County staff has recommended the commission waive the fee for the community celebration.

Tonight’s meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 in the commission chambers in the Seward County Administration Building.
