Venu-Works Deal Getting Closer

Most of yesterday’s Burlington City Council Work Session was spent talking about the cost of health insurance, but there was also some positive news on the Venu-Works front.

The Ames-based management company is reportedly very close to a deal with the city to manage the memorial Auditorium and it’s parking area.

In answer to a question by Councilman Shane McCambell, Spokesman Joe Briglia says some things will change when it comes to weddings…

“People will have a choice because they’ll have the Port facility, where they will have a limited expense to host their event. We’re not trying to do less weddings at the Auditorium, we’re just trying to raise the bar.”

Brilglia feels the council should have an agreement to review and sign at next week’s regular meeting.
