Coal in the Christmas stockings for the city hall grinches who screwed up the Santa parade voting.

The Santa Claus parade did take place; the streets were well lined and there were no incidents.

Viewers were supposed to be able to vote for the People`s Choice – choosing the float they thought was the best in the 49th annual parade.

All they had to do was go to the city web site and cast their vote.

Santa parade voting notice

Date was wrong and there was no place to actually vote.

Problem was the city web site didn`t have any place for people to vote. There was no place to enter your choice.

At another location on the city web site there was a large graphic showing the parade route – but the date of the parade taking place was wrong. Now the Gazette knows all about typographical errors – but we don`t have the resources city hall has.

There were a couple of parade sponsors – corporations who got behind the idea of a People`s Choice – hope they get their money back.

Good idea with strong community support – but the Grinch`s at city hall wouldn’t let it happen. Coal in their Christmas Stockings.
