Mayor Steve Gold has activated the City of Beacon Arts and Culture Committee. This committee was provided for in the city's charter, but, as Mayor Gold says in the letter before, it's never been populated. The Committee is co-chaired by Cabot Parsons and Robert Ruttigliano and can have up to 15 members which represent the various arts and business development groups in the city as well individual citizens artists and non artists. The committee will have no operating budget but conceivably, it can act as a bridge between the efforts of the city's various groups and individuals and foster and promote this an of the city which has had a notable impact on the character of the city in recent years. Mayor Gold posted both the letter below along with pdf attachments outlining the comittee's responsibilities and an application for those interested in being considered for membership over at the Beacon Citizen Network.
