Chamber wants to officially charge to get in Freedom Fest

    Steelville’s city council heard a request from the Chamber of Commerce to allow the organization to charge a fee for entrance to this year’s Freedom Fest on July 4, but the mayor noted they’d have to consult the city attorney before a decision could be made. Becky Simpson, festival organizer, asked if the change could be made from simply asking for donations at the entrance to the community park where the event is held, to an actual fee to get in. The fee would be the same as the requested donation—a dollar per individual or five dollars per family.
