Flaming Gorge Days Contract Back on GR Council Agenda

Flaming Gorge Days Contract Back on GR Council Agenda

GREEN RIVER — The Flaming Gorge Days contract is back on the Green River City Council meeting agenda this week.

Adelska, a Denver-based event company, was previously granted a one-year service agreement to put on Flaming Gorge Days for a total cost of $26,625. However, it was later discovered that Adelska submitted a budget that asked for the city to provide over $127,000, and the city presented an alternative budget of over $86,000.

That cost was going to allow Adelska to run the entire event, however, the city previously claimed that the contract had too many legal issues to change and the scope of the project has changed, requiring a new contract altogether. Now, Adelska has submitted a service agreement with the city to run the event for $21,500. The Council will consider approval of this service agreement during their Tuesday night meeting.

Flaming Gorge Days is scheduled to take place in June 2024, but specific dates have not been determined yet.
