Council postpones action on park events

Friday, June 9, 2017 by Jack Craver

City Council delayed action on a proposed ordinance reducing the number of days reserved for events at certain parks and changing parking policies, sound limits and hours of operation. The proposed ordinance would reduce the number of days available for special events at Zilker Park from 29 to 24, for Auditorium Shores from 20 to 17 and for Fiesta Gardens from 19 to 17. The postponement came after a lengthy and confusing conversation over whether to proceed on the matter. Mayor Steve Adler wanted to delay action until Council Member Ann Kitchen, who is absent due to a conference she is attending as a member of the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board of Directors, is present to partake in the discussion. Kitchen, whose district is adjacent to Zilker, had expressed particular interest in the matter.
