Fountain Inn was expected to approve its 2017-18 budget on Thursday, but during the meeting council agreed to extend the process. Another meeting will be scheduled within the month, and will be announced at fountaininn.org and on the city’s facebook page. The new budget will need to take effect on July 1, so a decision is expected in June.
Younts Center future still uncertain
Arts supporters continue to speak up regarding the Younts Center for Performing Arts, at the meeting and online. CreateInn, a Facebook page that supports local arts in the city, also shared a letter from Fountain Inn Repertory Experience (FIRE) actor and supporter Nancy Burkard:
