I bought 2 tickets today for some friends from KY. I own a house in Lawrenceburg. Lived in it over 12 years. Now its for sell. I pay utilities and almost $3000.00 a year in taxes. I did not qualify for free tickets. I bought my friends tickets at Hollywood. Atleast they will have a good time. Oh and so will my renters...or atleast I hope they all do. We will not be attending. I do hope everyone has a good time! But as soon as I can sell my house there "cheap" I am done with Lawrenceburg...a town I used to care about.
If Lawrenceburg had waited until next year to make these changes, and early in the season, people may have dealt with the issue better. Especially if an understandable statement was made prior to the announcement. People were NOT given enough time to consider the reasonings, etc. We were just told we were no longer invited to see the live entertainment. It was like a slap in the face for many of us. Things should have, and could have, been handled better.
We get it. You don't want the money we spend at your Fall Fest. No problem. We have went and spent our hard earned money buying food from your Kentucky fried chicken joint and spent money making donations along the fairway every year. You have seen the last of our money. We wont be attending again.
People who live outside lawrenceburg can still ride the rides for free. The only thing you would have to pay for is the concert which you can hear from Walnut Street anyways. People have to pay for tickets at the Aurora Farmers Fair and noone seems to complain about that. Thats how they make their money so what is wrong with lawrenceburg trying to make money on a concert. The rides ARE still free to everyone.
Things are getting a little slow at the Hollywood casino. So all good things like the fall fest will stop giving Lawrenceburg the funds for the fun.
My address is Lawrenceburg, but I'm not considered a "city resident". That's fine with me. I really don't want to be associated with Lawrenceburg anyway. I always just say I'm from Bright, where I now live, even though I lived and grew up in downtown Lawrenceburg. Good luck getting us outsiders to pay to see those names.
Wrong!! Come on everyone if you don't live in Lawrenceburg strike and DON"T go,they want to play like this with politics well we can say its unfair that we don't live in Lawrenceburg we have to PAY to get in!!! I will for sure not be going now,I'm not playing this game!!
Once again, Lawrenceburg decides to alienate "outsiders" with a petty, insane response for "Fall Fest". The message is loud and clear; Come to town and spend money at our casino's and restuarants, but this is our party and you need to stay away. This is real leadership from our "mayor" and council. Petty politics from petty people.
@Bonnie Smith I would love to see everyone boycott their event this year
@CarolBoyles What is the population of the city of Lawrenceburg? If you think about it, it's a way to show some interest to some people to make the community feel like there putting out for the expense . Really' $10 bucks isn't to bad for the tickets . It would have been nice to donate the profits from this concert for a new rehab center for the DRUG attics' instead of building the new jail house that the City is about done with. It would have been a great advertisement to bring in more people for buying tickets. And the people that live in the City would be glad to pay because it would be for a good cause. The city would make a ton of money with a new rehab center. Our jail house is filed up with people that are on drugs.
@adavis130 I am almost 60. I am also disabled. The only thing I was wanting to go for was the bands. I paid for my friends tickets...I told them I would, but when I have and pay for a home in Lawrenceburg, that I lose money on every year, including utilities I have had to pay, a house
that I can't sell, its not right I have to buy tickets for myself. I also heard, do not know if its true, all the business owners got free tickets. Which could be a nasty rumor...but I sure would like to know, as they do not all live in Lawrenceburg.
@adavis130 What is upsetting to residents of Lawrenceburg is the fact that even though your zip code says Lawrenceburg, you are not considered a "resident" unless you live in the city limits. We aren't allowed to the same privileges. We are considered outsiders. That's an insult. I could care less about the music. It's the principle. And the fact that the mayor made it crystal clear the fall fest is for Lawrenceburg residents. Not "outsiders".
D80, I understand what you are saying. I was just stating that people are mad about having to pay for a concert when all you have to do is stand on walnut street and watch and listen. People have been paying for tickets for the Farmers Fair for 106 years but no one complains about that. At least Lawrenceburg has free rides so the people who are less fortunate than others have a chance to take their kids to have fun that they dont often get to do. Very often I find myself with no money around farmers fair time and I am unable to get tickets so my kids can have fun like all of their friends. I feel the same way about Pat O'Neil Memorial Pool. They say only people that live in Lawrenceburg can swim for free. I too have a 47025 zip code and I live in Greendale, which technically was Lawrenceburg before it became its own. So that is kinda the same thing the Mayor is doing too. I think we have a lot of crooked people and cops running Lawrenceburg who only worry about lining their pockets instead of thinking about the taxpayers who pay their salaries. I am a single mother with 2 girls and I never have money to do anything with my girls unless its free. When I heard they were debating about only letting people who lived in Lawrenceburg go and everyone else was gonna have to pay for everything, including tickets, I was pissed. Sorry for the long post. I didnt post this to offend anyone.
