City Hall will make sure the Fireball Run Road Rally is welcome in Watertown this September. Council instructed City Manager John Krol to work out details for closing the block in front of the Library for an afternoon to allow the rally finish line and video production featuring the Library to take place.
It's an exciting event put on by Universal Pictures and three upstate cities were chosen to participate. Chamber Czar Lyn Pietroski said the rally will be good for the downtown economy, good publicity for the region and a fun event for families.
Three local teams are among the forty in the race, which also publicizes the plight of missing children.
City Manager Krol says its his job to implement the policy affirmed by Council, although initially there were concerns about traffic issues.
The matter was resolved at an open meeting held at 2PM today in Council Chambers.
