Festhalle Oversight Committee

The Festhalle Oversight Committee was established in 2013 to provide direction and recommendations on marketing and promotion of the Festhalle & Civic Center facility.

The Committee is the working group that reviews any physical improvements to the Festhalle and makes recommendations on funding, expenses, and the design of those improvements. The Committee also reviews the ongoing operations of the Festhalle through the review of the Festhalle Facilities Policy and annual operating budget. The Committee provides a recommended annual budget and any recommended changes to the use policy for the Mayor and City Council review and approve.

Members are appointed by the Mayor and serve a three-year term. 

If you have an interest in being part of this committee, please reach out to the City Administrator.
