Mayor Pagano advised that he has been in contact with the appropriate people for the organization of a Fall Cop 5-K Run to be held the morning of the event.

The entire Committee agreed that this event would be extremely successful and beneficial to the overall continuing promotion of Pontoon Beach.

Mayor Pagano gave a brief update on the status of securing musical bands for this year's event.
