Dubois prepares for spring and summer events

Dubois City Council took steps last week to accommodate several upcoming local events.

The National Wild Turkey Foundation fundraiser is scheduled to take place from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. April 23 at the Headwaters Community Arts and Conference Center, 20 Stalnaker St. The council has approved a temporary catering/open container permit for Rustic Pine Tavern for the event.

The Dubois Speed ​​Goats Dirt Bike Club is hosting a May 21 motorcycle race on the Overlook with up to 70 participants. The council authorized the club to host the event.

The council also approved a special event permit for the annual 4th of July parade in the city.

Two TAD grant applications were approved last week:

-$5,540 to help market and advertise the 2022 Third Highway into Dubois Fly-In Summer Program

-$2,775 to advertise Tuesday night square dances at St. Thomas Episcopal Church

A third request for a TAD grant – $1,000 for visitor center equipment and furniture – was unanimously denied because it did not follow city policy and procedures.

The board also approved business licenses for Romco, 118 E. Ramshorn St., and Diverse Horizons LLC doing business as 2Z’s BBQ, 106 E. Ramshorn St.
