City Seeking Alternate Funding for Events

     As a result of the proposed cuts in State Funding brought about through the actions of the Governor and the State Legislature as they attempt to balance the out of control State budget, the City of Northlake has been forced to take a hard look at the cost of putting on many popular programs throughout the year.

Thankfully, Octapharma and Champion Logistics have stepped up and saved the fireworks and car show which were a part of Northlake days.

We are looking for additional sponsors for Boofest, the annual senior citizens dinner, as well as the City’s share of Winterfest. We have some promising leads on this front and hopefully will be able to make some positive announcements in the near future.
