Tipton Bureau UPTON Ind Will the Tipton County Commissioners say yes to the Pork Festival committees pro posal to put up a food tent on county property or will they say no and hog the courthouse parking lot That question is to be answered Tuesday Pork Festival committee planners will present their pro posal to the commissioners at The Pork Festival is an annual threeday downtown celebration to promote one of the countys leading agricultural products pork More than people from the Hoosier state and sur rounding states converge down town Many come for me delec table pork chops cooked and served under the food The Pork Festival has been a Tipton tradition for 25 years But theres talk of not having the festi val for the 26th year held the Thursday Friday and Saturday after Labor Day if the commis sioners dont allow the food tent to be set up on the parking lot south of the courthouse Pork Festival planners say the county courthouse parking lot is the only place downtown big enough to set up the food tent When the commissioners denied the Tipton County sesquicenten nial committee permission to use the lot for a similar but smaller food tent Pork Festival planners began wondering if they too would be denied use of the lot The commissioners told the sesquicentennial committee that because the county had spent more than on repaving the lot they did not want to see tent stakes pounded into the pave ment and get grease from the cookers on county grounds During a recent commissioners meeting board members expressed their concerns about a food tent damaging the lot but said they would wait to hear the Pork Festival planners proposal before making a decision Knowing the commissioners are definitely not in favor of the way the food tent was set up in past years Pork Festival planners have been preparing a plan B of sorts Instead of driving tent stakes into the pavement to anchor one large food tent Randy Byal Pork Festival manager said they will agree to use three smaller tents The tents would once set up side by side equal the size of the one large tent normally Water sand could be used to anchor the three smaller tents No stakes would be used which means no holes in the newly T paved parking lot Anticipating the commissioners mightstill deny the Pork Festival permission to use the lotbecause of the grease Pork Festival plan ners will also offer to resurface the parking lot where the cookers are stationed The food tent is the festival Without the food tent theres no point in having the festival Byal said Byal said the committee is will ing to repair any damage caused by the tents and cookers and pojst a bond if needed After offering to repair any damages and post a bond the only reason Pork Festival planners can foresee the commissioners rejecting their proposal is because oftheodor Byal agreed that due to the food trash and grease a smell lingers However he said the only pefij pie affected are those that work ait the courthouse And it the stencn goes away in a few weeks The odor is far outweighed by the ben efits of the Inside todays Tribune Morning paper for Monday Classified Dr Local News of On Monday Independence1 Day the
