City Hall: A half-cheer for beer; Alderman Levasseur drops lawsuit against Greazzo
"I am hoping for this to become an annual event and raise some money for New Horizons and bring a lot of people to Manchester in the summer time," Telge wrote in a letter to the aldermen.
But Alderman Pat Long, whose nickname could be Mr. Downtown, said the beer festival was just the kind of event the city should take steps to promote. "The (event) is going to bring in people. This is the first brew fest event; other cities are looking for this, and it has the potential of growing," he said. "Our put-in is not financial; it's waiving a $500 fee."
Then Alderman William Shea, ever the peacemaker, proposed waiving only the larger of the fees, the $300 fair permit. And this was passed without a veto. Cheers to that.
Levasseur says he dropped the suit after he was able to get the insurance agent for the Manchester Dog Park Association to attest in an affidavit that its coverage had lapsed for a month last fall.
"His request to dismiss his own case shows it was frivolous and further illustrates his pattern of behavior," Greazzo said in a statement, referring to Levasseur. "He stalled at every turn, missed every deadline to provide the required disclosures and evidence to prove his case (like all other recent instances) and like all other cases claims victory despite facts to the contrary."
