Re-enactment comes up short

November 13, 2002|by TARA REILLY

Washington County Planning Director Robert Arch said Tuesday that the 140th Anniversary Re-enactment of the Battle of Antietam cost $880,000 and brought in $850,000 in revenue, leaving a shortfall of about $30,000.

Arch was a co-coordinator of the event. He said negotiations with some vendors may reduce some costs.

Event organizers had asked the county whether hotel/motel tax dollars would be available to fund a shortfall.

Commissioners President Gregory I. Snook told Arch to prepare a full report on costs and present it to the commissioners at a later date.
