Council will reconsider Moonshine Festival permit


DAWSONVILLE, Ga. – The Dawsonville City Council will hold a called meeting at 4 p.m. Tuesday Sept. 29 to review conditions for the 53rd Annual Mountain Moonshine Festival permit.

City officials approved a permit for K.A.R.E. for Kids to hold the event on Sept. 7 but were not aware that a parade was planned as part of the event. At last week’s meeting, City Manager Bob Bolz told councilmen he was surprised to learn about plans for the parade. “That was news to us,” he said.

Councilman John Walden immediately made a motion for the special called meeting to “reconsider the conditions of the permit.”
