The Lewisville City Council unanimously approved a fee waiver request in the amount of $2,019.88 for Main & Mill Association’s Shared Table event at a meeting Monday.
The second annual event will be held Oct. 14 with the purpose of highlighting local businesses while also raising money for publicly accessible art projects and to pay the electricity costs associated with the city-funded exterior lighting program.
The fees associated with the event includes $274.88 in special event fees for the permit and for parks and recreation department staff; and $1,745 in rental fees through MCL Grand for use of Wayne Ferguson Plaza and for tables and chairs.
The City Council approved the waiver in 2017 with the stipulation that event proceeds be used for Old Town marketing or public art. The council later approved using those proceeds for a mural on the side of Beside The Bride, facing south toward Old Town Wine House and Perc Coffeehouse. The intent is to use 2018 proceeds to add a second panel to the mural.
The event starts at 6 p.m., and attendance is limited to 100 people at $100 per person. Shared Table will be an open-air dining experience featuring local bites, spirits and entertainment. All food and drink will come from Old Town businesses, served in flights with food and beverage pairings.
