HUNTINGTON PARK — Despite rising concerns about the group's stability, the City Council has decided not to rescind a contract that allows the Jaycees to run the annual Community Fair here.
The council, however, made it clear that it will refuse to allow the Jaycees to operate future fairs if this year's program does not meet city standards.
The fair, scheduled Oct. 9 to 14, is the only major fund-raiser for the local Jaycees, which is a nonprofit organization. An organization spokesman said the fair earned the group $25,000 last year.
Councilman Herbert A. Hennes Jr. said a turnover in membership and management--including two presidents and one acting president in recent months--raised questions about whether the Jaycees remain a "bona fide organization."
