MACOMB — A plan to use tickets instead of cash at food booths for Heritage Days was cancelled this week.
Jock Hedblade, director of the Macomb Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, said costs to implement the plan were uncertain and the committee was not sure there would be enough time to make significant money on pre-sales.
Ten members of the Macomb Heritage Days committee voted to put the plan aside for 2018. Hedblade had hosted a finance subcommittee meeting at his office on Monday.
"With the remaining time we had left, it could have been a problem," committee co-chair Rachel Lenz said on Tuesday. She added that she feels the use of tickets to account for Heritage Days food purchases should be an option to consider for 2019.
Hedblade said there will be an increase in the cost of booth space for the summer festival. He said there has been no increase in that fee for five years.
