Georgetown Grand a go for second year

City Council approved sponsoring the second year of the Georgetown Grand at the July 24 meeting.

An economic impact analysis targeted 800 who participated in the event and received 243 responses. According to the survey, the event brought in more than $264,000 to the city, and more than 98 percent of survey responders said they would return for the next Georgetown Grand. However, city staff received mixed reviews from downtown business owners.

City of Georgetown spokesman Keith Hutchinson said based on the response, the event will be moved to September and the course would likely change.

City Council members approved sponsoring the event, but said they would like to see downtown business owners involved in selecting the new course.
